This lesson introduces the concepts of food and culture and
how they are tied together.  The basic concepts of geography
are explained, and students will be asked to think through how each
of the 5 themes of geography affect food in a culture.

Throughout this series of 4 lessons, students will become
acquainted with many cultures and their food, and become well
versed with one country (of their choice) in particular.  An
extensive group project on a chosen country includes a written
report, map, flag, poster, presentation and ending with a prepared
3 course traditional meal from that country.  Library or
computer lab recommended. Can be used as a final lab project.
