This is the first of a four part course exploring four countries on the African continent through culture and, specifically, cooking. With this first part of the course, your child will be invited to learn about Tunisia's history (ancient and modern), its important cities and landmarks, its geographical location in the African continent, and much more. Your child will also be invited, alongside you, and with the help of a step-by-step video, to cook a traditional Tunisian dish - Tunisian brik.
Finally, the course offers a math extension, meant to help kids understand and put into context the way that units of measurement can be converted in a recipe (cups to grams, for example).
While, certainly, this course offers academic value, with its focus on Social Studies, Reading, 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 aged 8+
