"The Culture Kitchen: Destination Africa. PART 3: Ethiopia" offers an opportunity for families to learn together about the culture and cuisine of the East African nation, Ethiopia. Students are invited to learn about the country and its cuisine through an interactive PowerPoint and video. The video features students cooking doro wat (chicken stew) and mesir wat (lentil stew), two important Ethiopian dishes. As they cook, the students discuss what they have learned about Ethiopia from their research.
While, certainly, this course offers academic value, with its focus on Social Studies, Literacy, and Math, its ultimate value goes beyond academics. The course seeks to help students become better global citizens by learning about a country in depth; it pushes them to be risk takers by trying a new and different dish; finally, it opens the door to developing an important life skill, cooking.
All dishes in the Culture Kitchen are vegetarian or have vegetarian substitutes.
This course is appropriate for students ages 8+.
