To celebrate MLK day as well as extend Chapter five in our Social Studies book we held a cultural tasting party on Monday. This was an optional activity for the students. They could bring a food that was from their own cultural background to share with the entire class. Many students chose to bring a food from their family culture and explained the country or ethnic history of the food. We had Swedish rosettes, Native American fry bread and fruit pudding ( I forgot the name),Belgian cookies, French eclairs, Italian garlic bread and biscotti, German sausage, Czechoslovakian kolaches, Dutch lace cookies, along with Irish cream sodas. We had a great time eating our delicious food from many lands. We realized that our classroom is quite diverse and we are glad and proud of that fact!
