In Cindy Piano’s third grade class, Friendship Soup is cooking. The students plan, then each one brings an ingredient. Then they get busy mixing and measuring. Slicing and stirring. The smell of soup fills the halls of Steen Elementary School in Bogota, New Jersey. By lunch time, soup is on. Cindy does this with her classes every year. The kids love it! They talk about it and write about it and make up stories about Friendship Soup. Wouldn’t some taste good right now?
