In the home or classroom: make a meal of traditional local fare. Research why it is a favorite in your neck of the woods, where the ingredients come from. Is it a favorite because there exists a concentration of people from a certain nationality in your area, is the produce grown or harvested there or does it grow naturally?
Cooking is such a great learning opportunity to involve your children in concepts such as volume, measurement, fractions, states of matter, physics and chemistry can be experienced in context. Not to mention they also get to take in sensory information, use descriptive language and just have good old fashioned family fun!
