Color theory you can eat
That creative young woman in Washington is at it again. I blogged about her a few months ago when she was posting her werewolf costume construction process on YouTube . She recently put up a tutorial on cookie decorating but hidden within all that chewy goodness is a wonderful lesson on color theory.
Here is a fun way for all you home economic teachers out there to integrate your curriculum with other subject areas. Your art teachers, your science teachers and even your color deficient, elderly technology teachers usually cover color theory at some point. I think your students will be paying particularly close attention in class if instead of the family dog, they get to eat their homework for a change.
