Design a box to hold yummy recipes from diverse family food traditions. Collect them in your classroom and around the world.
Everybody comes home asking, "What’s for dinner?" but the answers that kids get can be very different depending upon family food traditions. In Everybody Cooks Rice, Carrie samples a wide variety of meals being cooked in her neighborhood. Families are from Vietnam, China, Haiti, Puerto Rico, India, Barbados, and Italy. Although the ingredients and favors are very different, each household is cooking with rice.
Collect recipes. In your classroom, talk about the origins of your families’ food traditions. What common foods, such as rice or bread, can you identify?
Ask someone at home to help you write a favorite recipe on an index card with Crayola® Erasable Colored Pencils. If you make a mistake, just erase! Draw the country’s flag associated with the recipe next to the dish’s name. Copy several other students’ recipes that you think your family would like.
Design a recipe box. Cut brightly colored paper with Crayola Scissors to cover a recycled tissue box. Use Crayola School Glue to attach the paper.
Draw cooking utensils, food sources, and flags. Cut them out and glue them on the recipe box.
Continue to garnish the box using Crayola Markers and other decorative materials such as aluminum foil (to carry out the cooking theme). At home, ask your family to make several new recipes.
