From The Town Talk: Turning deserts into desserts: Pupils take bite out of geography
A project in teacher Sandra Goldich's class offered a lot more than food for thought.
It offered plenty of food for the students who got to take a bite out of geography.
Sixth-graders in Goldich's class at Phoenix Magnet Elementary School in Alexandria turned deserts into desserts and made other edible creations in the "Eating & Making Their Worlds" project.
The students made continents, water, rivers, mountains and other formations out of
edible materials, which somehow found their way into students' mouths along the way.
The tasteful project was intended to be fun as well as a learning experience.
"Instead of erasing their mistakes on paper, we will simply eat our mistakes and continue with work," Goldich said of the project.
The pupils used their creativity to make topographical works of art that were both pleasing to the eye and the palate.
