Mission Project
It is getting close to Easter and the workers at the peeps factory have forgotten what step comes after making the marshmallow shapes.  They still have a lot of peeps to make before Easter.  They need your help they need you to visit the peeps factory and take a tour.  During the tour it will tell you the steps for making peeps.  They need to know what to do after making the marshmallow shapes.  They also need to know how many days until Easter so they know how long they have to finish making all the peeps. After you have figured out what the next step is you need to draw the workers a picture of the step and write the number of days until Easter on the picture.

Mission Steps:

1. Visit the peeps web site and take a tour of the peeps factory. As you take the tour it will show you the steps to make the peeps.  You need to find out what step comes after making the marshmallow shapes.

2. Once you have figured out what the next step is you need to draw a picture of that step for the factory workers.

3. To find out how many days the workers have until Easter visit the web site that tells how many days there are until Easter.

4. Once you know how many days there are until Easter write the number of days on your paper with your drawing.

5. Once you have finished give your picture to your teacher and it will be published on the internet.
