I browned all the sausage and froze it for future meals.

You can use pre-made pizza sauce, but I made my own. Add garlic powder, basil, pepper to a can of tomato sauce…easy!

Slice toppings.  The ham piece was the hardest.

Place tomato & mushroom in center to symbolize nucleus & nucleolus.

Other methods to encourage your kids to enjoy learning in their homeschool studies, besides food, include videos. In less than 3 minutes, you can review parts of an animal cell and what they do for animals.
