Recently, in my English class, we did this activity called Crow vs. Crop where people would interrogate others about their ideas for their innovation project. This is like crows pecking at the crops. They want to find out the good stuff. This is an important and beneficial process because it helps the “crops” figure out the flaws in their ideas and improve on them. As I was looking through pictures, I came across some blackbird cookies and corn crop cake pop treats that reminded me of the Crow vs. Crop activity. Not only were these treats cute, they are perfect to make for this fall season.
Have you ever thought what it might be like if the world began to rain food like in the movie “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs”? The movie focuses on how the main character, Flint Lockwood, always wanted to make a difference and create something new despite of being discouraged by the people around him. His enthusiasm for inventing is what keeps him motivated to continue. Although many of his creative inventions usually end up in failure, Flint doesn’t give up. When the only source of revenue for the town is gone, Flint takes it as his opportunity to build a machine that would change water into food. However, things turned out differently than what Flint expected. He ended up changing the weather and making it rain food in the town of Swallow Falls!
