1.. Bake a cake!- Bake and decorate a cake to go along with whatever unit or lesson you are teaching. Get creative! Be sure to take pictures and talk about the cake design with students and incorporate it into a lesson. Perhaps have students make observations.
For a night and day Lesson I created the following cake: I was pressed for time, so it's nothing fancy and was very cheap to make. I'm sure you crafty, amazing teachers can really make some amazing cakes..in fact, if you decide to make a cake, feel free to share it with us! (The picture of course)

2. Moon phases: Using Oreos, and small Popsicle sticks (or whatever else will get the frosting off), have students make the phases of the moon. You can do this on a paper plate, and have them label each phase. Also, don't forget to put the Earth in the center so they are reminded that the moon circles the Earth. You should also have the students put about how long it takes for this to occur on their design. Take pictures to hang up or for a class newsletter!
