A fun thing to create when you have a some time. It’s great that this tutorial uses Japanese products… well except for the candy melts – I don’t think you can find this in Japan. But, you can definitely figure it out with maybe some white chocolate and a touch of food coloring or something.
If any of you make a mini dessert bar with these, definitely share the pictures. We should play around one day in the food lab!
There is alway a lot of great learning, reflecting, service and activities going on at CA. Here are some student posts that highlight all of this great learning in and out of school.

On February 14th and 15th, CA hosted a Google Summit where teachers learned about using Google Apps in Education and collaborated and networked with each other.

Mr. Bellew posts a lot of great media to analyze on his blog as he prepares his students in their Language and Literature class.
Sixth and seventh grade English students posted about their Winter Break through images and text. There are a lot of great examples on student blogs. Start with Ragini’s and Jae Young’s for good examples.
There are so many amazing things that CA students are doing to compassionately impact their world. There are hundreds (really!) of service posts this month as we finished semester one. Read about Kaiki’s experience at the KISS Elderly House.
