I am obsessed with other cultures. Luckily, I passed this obsession on to my daughter. I started creating Cultural Learning Units in which I’d come up with a hands- on lesson plan to teach/ and learn about different countries. We usually do a craft, look up YouTube videos about that country, take out books from the library, listen to their music, do a physical activity relating to that country, cross- curriculum worksheets if we can , and cook an authentic meal. Usually we cook a dinner, but sometimes we add in a dessert too.
I know we’ve done other countries too— Brazil 🇧🇷 was something with chocolate and sprinkles, India 🇮🇳 was something with Bananas that I’m pretty sure I made wrong because it didn’t turn out that yummy lol. But we made up for that with Mango Lassi which is heavenly
The ones listed are :
- Egypt 🇪🇬: Umm Ali (we just did this one)
- France 🇫🇷: Crêpe
- Vietnam 🇻🇳: Che Choui
