Student #1What is Brewing in Cafe 311?
Students were asked to draw their own versions of what would go in a stew.
some student's stews were all vegetables while others had a variety of ingredients such as shrimp, meats, etc!Students began with prelimenary drawings of food that they would represent in their art work.
Student #2Where do food ingredients come from?
Each students made a list of their favorite foods. We learned that room 311 students have pretty international taste-buds!
Some students had gumbo, chicken dishes while others had on their list foods they had tasted in Japan such as octopus or even camel! Using a world map, students researched where foods come from. We learned that different foods and spices come from all over the world!
