Cultural Food Feast

As the culmination of their immigration and culture unit, students in Jennifer Mintz’s class at Maud S. Sherwood Elementary School celebrated with a cultural food feast. Choosing a country of their origin, students researched their country, created a flag and map, and wrote a report detailing what they had learned. Additionally, they each selected a recipe honoring their heritage for inclusion in a class recipe book. On Dec. 11, students brought in a dish to share with their classmates. Following their feast, the students were invited to share any heirlooms, artifacts, pictures or clothing that represented their nationalities.
