What about something with dry spaghetti, creating a structure somehow and
watching what happens with the introduction of heat/water/steam?

Subject: Baking Architecture Recipies
Does anyone have any ideas combining architecture and baking?
My 8th graders need to complete an architecture unit, to meet the
curriculum. I've introduced them to the three architecture orders of the
golden age of Greece, and we've done a photo trip through our town looking
at the Greek revival arcitecture, and we've discussed how the ancient Greek
architecture has influenced our local architecture.
A large group of 8th graders wants to do a "Art Cooking" project (we have a
full size kitchen range in the artroom, and a small fridge) I thought it
might be fun to combine cooking with architecture.
Ideas I have not yet boiled down: architectural details in gingerbread,
gingerbread houses, etc?
Any other ideas?
Thanks in advance, Mark (who can cook, but isn't a baker)
