World Food Project

The kids in Creston took part in a World Food Project, making Habitant Soup, along with their teachers Linda and Shamim.

This was the culminating project for their grade 1-3 food and culture unit. They began with the book “Everybody Serves Soup” by Norah Dooley as a basis for discussion –  looking at food cultures in Japan, Puerto Rico, Southern U.S., and Ukraine. They then looked inward at Canadian culture, and decided on creating Habitant Pea Soup. They used Pen Pal School’s “Food and Culture” project as a platform of sharing what they’d learned.
