    Teaching is always great when students are having fun while learning. By including food, crafts, books, dance from different cultures kids tend to remember these moments longer.

    i participated in language exchange program. Connecting with native speakers of different languages not only helped me learn the language but also opened up conversations about their culture,
    traditions, and daily life

    Yes, I’ve learned about different cultures by trying foods from various countries. Tasting dishes like sushi from Japan, tacos from Mexico, or pasta from Italy helped me understand their culinary traditions and appreciate their cultures in a fun and delicious way

    Yes, I’ve had the opportunity to learn about different cultures through
    cultural storytelling sessions. Listening to stories from different
    parts of the world not only entertains but also educates. Storytelling
    brings traditions, beliefs, and values to life, making it a fun and
    engaging way to understand and appreciate the richness of diverse
    cultures

    My culture is actually two. I am half Mexican and white. We have many family traditions we do every year. We make tamales, Mexican wedding cake cookie and we make pozole which a soup made during Christmas time.

    One of my coworkers is from Iran. She cooks dishes from her country and shares with the other teachers and staff. She also teaches the kids words and phrases in Farsi. We are always impressed with how the kids remember the things she has taught them!

    Absolutely! I’ve found that diving into different cuisines is a delicious way to explore diverse cultures. Trying out new recipes and visiting local restaurants or markets offers a fun and tasty journey around the world, all while sparking conversations about traditions and customs. So what you can do for the kids is organise a food party and ask them to bring their traditional food from their home which they can share with their friends in class.
