In our middle school classroom, we are encouraging our students to learn about the diversity of different cultures around the world with the help from a Universal Yum Box. The box showcases a different country each month, along with snacks from that country and a pamphlet that gives an overview of the country’s language(s), upcoming events, important landmarks, rituals, and fun trivia games. The fun doesn’t stop there! The student’s also have their art projects based on the country, as well as, a weekly cooking class. In the cooking class they get to use their reading skills by following the country’s recipe and their math skills with measurements of the ingredients. This also has given the students an opportunity to experience different foods and flavors they may have never tried before. So far this year, the students have learned about Indonesia, Turkey, and Greece.
