And last, we have a tomato fight! (I used the following pdf of tomato’s, cut them out and taped them onto our indoor snowballs). In this months letter from Sam and Sofia, they taught us about the La Tomatina Festival. It is known for one of the largest tomato fights. We of course couldn’t make that type of mess in our classroom, but we had just as much fun using fake tomato’s…
