Global Food Show and Tell (iEARN Project)

Investigating a different category of food each month, KSPS students are sharing the foods that are typical in their country.
Each month the students are sharing a video letter ,pictures , or recipes  showing the food and describing it in the iEARN Forum.  Partner schools are responding in either a written or video response . Would they enjoy that food?  Do they have something similar in their country?

This is our Project Calendar: Breakfast Foods - September; School Lunch Foods - October; Holiday Foods - November; Cookies - December; Healthy Foods and Drinks - January; Favorite Food - February; Breads - March; Meats - April; Vegetables, Fruits - May; Cook Out/Picnic Foods - June.

Count, Buy, Eat!

Grade 4 students had an interesting activity that allowed them to set their own meal in a specific budget. This activity involved students using their math computing skills and their science skills too!
The activity started when students were divided into group of 4 members each. Each group had a specific diner menu and a specific amount of money. Students used this amount of money to form a meal that contains all the food groups (students used knowledge about food pyramid acquired in the science classes).
This activity allowed students to develop and strengthen their thinking, problem solving, cooperating, and decision making strategies; they needed a specific time to plan, adapt others opinions, evaluate their thinking, and take the appropriate decision.
 Finally, students used their artistic skills to draw the meals they formed.
