Grains of the World

Often, we form ideas about other people and other cultures based on stereotypes and inaccurate information. Sometimes, we have sparse knowledge or no knowledge of other peoples and this may lead to a fear of the unknown. In this workshop, we will learn about nutrition in other cultures by studying their dietary staples.

For primary school: We run this activity with stations and the school staff helps us to man the stations. The stations include cooking, creative expression, geography and more.

For junior high and high school : We integrate other topics (cultures, languages) by working with the history or social studies teacher. We also have an opportunity to discuss how to approach “the other” by playing a game followed by discussion group.
