Oct 18 Food Fight

One of the best days in my teaching career came during the food chapter in the textbook. I wanted to teach it in a way that would grab my students’ attention and would be fun for the entire class. The traditional route would have been ok, but I didn’t want the lesson to be just ok. I wanted it to be extraordinary; one for the Guinness books.

The night before we started the chapter I went to the teaching store. I passed by several posters, but I wasn’t all too convinced that a poster would get through to my students. I passed by figurines, but they weren’t too convincing either. Finally I passed by a game called “Food Fight.” I mean literally passed by, so much so I had to take a few paces back to really look at the box. It was a green box with a giant head with an open mouth and giant hands on each side. If you want to know the true meaning of LOL, I was seriously laughing out loud at this box. On the bottom of the box there were foods. I finally got it, a food fight. It was a game with food. The object of the game was to get the food in the giant mouth.

 One of the best ways to explore Hispanic Heritage Month is to learn about the past history of Hispanic peoples in order to obtain a better understanding of who Hispanics are today.  Our Hispanic roots can be traced back centuries with roots both in the Iberian Peninsula and the Americas.  It is important to study our roots from both perspectives in order to understand who Hispanics are today.

Activity:  Students work in small groups to research information and from that research develop a PowerPoint, a collage with illustrations and written descriptions on a display board, or a pamphlet on one of the topics listed below or a topic of their choice with teacher approval.
