On of my favorite units is teaching the Food Unit. I love sharing the unique flavors of Latin America with my students. During the beginning of the unit, I have a “Comida del día” that I have described on the powerpoint along with their daily bellringer questions. We discuss the food and its origin.
To help students identify these foods and create a lasting impressions I recently created a Bulletin Board of Authentic Hispanic Foods including Pictures and Labels. Each are only $1.00 and ready to print or use immediately in class.
In another section of the room, I took this document (which you can download for free) and enlarged it on our school’s poster maker. As we talked about the foods, many students were eager to try these foods or had already tried them. The students would write their name under that item and write a smiley face if they liked it or frowny face if they didn’t.
