Fun Cultural Study Blogger Project

It's the December Holiday Break and I'm thinking about different ways a blog could be used in the classroom. After mulling through"Pinterest Holiday Recipes" a brainstorm for a blog project evolved. Why not create a classroom recipe blog? It is one small way of providing an authentic writing experienced to be shared with the world. 

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?

The "Digital World" is forever moving forward and sometimes it can be challenging to keep up with the changes. Recently Blogger updated it's dashboard and this "Simple" changed confused many users.

So when your student says, "Teacher Where Did the Classroom Blog Go?" You can respond with it is still there. Just follow these directions to find the blog.
