Wouldn't it be fun if two classrooms from totally different parts of the world shared a "Recipe Blog"? The student's would have an authentic opportunity to learn about each others culture by sharing the foods they eat. Both classrooms would have the opportunity to post recipes and use the comment area to ask and answer questions.
They can share photos of the foods along with family traditions. One tradition my family does is we like to grill our hamburgers and mainly eat them during the late spring and summer due to the warmer weather. Have you ever wondered what other families around the world eat and why?
How Would this Project Benefit Students?
- Due to maintaining a recipe blog students may have opportunities to learn about places and cultures they never heard of.
- This provides an engaging reason for students to write beyond daily classroom activities.
- Students will learn the challenges of communicating and collaborating due to global linguistic issues.
- The students will be presented with an authentic opportunity to practice digital citizenship beyond the walls of the classroom.
