Food From Around the World

  1. Bring in several cookbooks or books about food origin for students to use at this center.
  2. Create magazine cut-outs or other displays of foods from all over the world.
  3. Have students guess where the different foods come from by placing them on a large map.
  4. Have students verify or correct their predictions by researching the foods in the books.
  5. Have students make a display showing what they learned. You may want to provide small maps for each student so that they may write the foods they learn about within the appropriate countries.
