Activity planned:

(computer lab) This week is devoted to a PowerPoint presentation using the images of the photographer Peter Menzel, found on the Internet, with the title "Hungry planet: What the world eats". This will be food for thought on the diets of other cultures and will trigger a general discussion on world eating habits.

Activity done:

The pupils watched the presentation in pairs, with each pair having been assigned a different country. They were asked to think and answer the questions that arise in each picture. Then, each pair was asked to present their country to the rest of the class and try to answer their questions. The outcome of this activity was that the students puzzled over the different cultures and the position food has in each of them. They had time to consider out own food tradition and relate it to some of the other countries.
