Orange Confusion: What is a slice?
Today was "Field Day" at Izzy's school. The class walked over to a nearby baseball field and the children hopped and bounced from one activity to the next. Bubble blowing, faux egg toss, and real water balloons were the highlights.
Parents were asked to contribute watermelon or "orange slices" as a snack. When I read the email I thought it funny that they wanted orange slices but liked the idea and do love serving oranges in that manner. Sliced orange rounds are a fun way for kids to eat oranges. So I sliced a bunch of oranges as seen above and brought them to the field.
There I discovered other interpretations of sliced oranges. Some moms brought in orange segments.
Still others brought in oranges cut into quarters or eighths.
And so I ask, what did the email writer imagine when she requested orange slices and what image comes to your mind when you imagine an orange slice?
