We eventually made the foods out of clay and created a special serving
plate to put it on. There was a lot of dialogue between the students
while they worked. This sharing interchange between kids was wonderful. We
learned a lot about foods, various cultures and about each other.
At the end of our summer program, I featured the foods on a long banquet
table with a nice table cloth, candles and flowers. Foods were grouped by
country and if a story or special information had been submitted, I placed
it next to the dish. I even convinced a few parents to make some of the
dishes for us to try. The display was a big hit and I learned that there
is a lot of cultural diversity right in our own backyard (even in a mostly
white suburban school).
