> Here's an inspiring (I think new) lesson. We're doing a unit on Japan
> this year. My third graders were inspired by the plasitic food
> displays in the windows of Japanese restaurants. These displays are
> so realistic that you can't believe the food isn't real. It takes
> them years of training to learn how to make this plastic food. I got
> some great images from Google of fake shrimp tempura, beef bowl and
> fried rice. There's a district in Japan devoted to this fake food.
> Anyway, I gave them small paper plates to decorate and then passed out
> Model Magic (no kiln at my school). They created the most realistic
> version of their favorite foods. Next they will mix paint to create
> realistic colors. They get the primary colors and black and white.
> Then they will make a little display with a construction paper
> decorated placemat, napkin, cut out "silverware", etc. Some of the
> food they made included a slice of pizza with pepperoni, oreo cookies,
> sushi, tacos and hamburgers. All my other classes have been begging
> to do this. Sky in NJ
