Christmas cookie calculations



Indian Lake Elementary School kindergarten students Winnie Bodin, left, and Jason Friend from Jodi Carder’s classroom use their newly learned math skills of measurement to make Christmas cookies during a recent assignment. Their class measured the flour, sugar and baking powder to make the cookie dough. Then they were able to roll out the dough and choose their own cookie shape. Not surprisingly, the pupils said the best part of the lesson was partaking of the cookies. (PHOTO | INDIAN LAKE SCHOOLS)

Columbus Ave. The song aptly described the snowy and icy weather outside this weekend, which Logan County History Center officials said did not deter visitors from the annual open house event. BELOW: Kayla Horney, left, and her brother, Keaton, try to locate a mask that she created with her fellow fourthgrade students at Benjamin Logan Schools for two colorfully decorated trees on display at the mansion. The two-weekend event concluded Sunday, and attendees were invited to vote for their favorite Christmas tree out of many trees decorated by school groups, churches, local agencies and clubs that filled all three floors of the 521 E.
