Bet you never gave baking cookies a second thought

A multi-discipline school assignment you can eat

Here's a multi-discipline school assignment that you can eat.

The Icon writer had a hankering for cookies and decided to see how many disciplines baking them involves. The following column demonstrates the result, wondering how public school students might use this exercise at home.

Disciplines used
Reading, writing, mathematics, geography, music appreciation, home economics, chemistry, art, critical thinking, foreign language, physical education and study hall. Perhaps there are others we’ve not considered.

A suggested summer school lesson plan

Sometimes we need a reminder to take it easy. Here's a tongue-in-cheek summer school lesson plan from the Ada Bulldogs Facebook. Don't know about you, but the Icon staff might study physics this summer, how about you?

Where the heck is this?

So, you think you know Ada? Okay, let's start playing a little game. We'll call it "Where the heck is this?"

The rules are simple:
1 - The Icon posts a photo showing a portion of an object or location inside the village limits of Ada.

2 - Try to figure out where or what it is.

3 - Click on the link here (or go to the classified page) and discover the answer. We will provide a larger photo of the weekly object in question on the classified page.

Good luck!
