Pizza Map
Ingredients:
Pizza crust: 1/4 ounce package dry yeast; 1 1/3 cups warm water; 2 tablespoons oil; 1 teaspoon salt; 4 cups flour; 1 tablespoon sugar or honey.
Pizza topping: 8 ounces pizza or tomato sauce; 1/2 pound grated mozzarella cheese; sliced vegetables; sliced sausage or pepperoni; any other desired toppings

Directions:
First make crust. In a mixing bowl, dissolve the yeast in warm water, add oil and honey. Mix well and let stand for 5 minutes. Add flour one cup at a time and mix until dough is elastic, but not sticky. Put dough on a floured board and fold and press the dough for a few minutes. Take a teaspoon of vegetable oil and rub it around the inside of a bowl. Place the dough in bowl and cover with a towel. Let rise for 1 to 1 1/2 hours or until doubled in size. Put dough on greased cookie sheet and shape the dough to look like a favorite country. Cover with tomato sauce and other toppings. Use the toppings to mark lakes, mountain ranges, rivers, state capitals or favorite vacation spots. Bake for 20 to 30 minutes at 375 degrees Fahrenheit (190 degrees Celsius). The pizza is done when the cheese melts and the crust is brown.

Winter ReadingLog
Materials:
Small notebook; pen or pencil

Directions:
There is nothing better to do on a cold winter day than curl up somewhere warm with a good book. At the first day of winter, start your Winter Reading Log.... List all the books you read during the winter months. Allow a few lines below each title to include the author's name, how you felt about the book, whether you'd recommend it to your friends and if you own it or borrowed it. You might like to include the titles of other books by the same author. Keep your Winter Reading Log updated year after year.
Note: Winter Solstice is officially the first day of winter. It falls on about December 22 in the Northern Hemisphere and on about June 22 in the Southern Hemisphere.

Egg Drop
Ingredients:
Raw egg (and a few extra); packing materials; string or tape

Directions:
The object of this activity is to wrap up an egg so that it won't break when dropped from a height. The recommended height is 12-15 feet. Design a container which will protect the egg from breaking. It should be lightweight and sturdy. Most of all, it should withstand sudden impact with the ground.
Note: The Egg Drop is one of the events in the Science Olympics in which many schools participate. This could be your entry.
