I always wondered why we teach students to talk about hamburgers and French fries in Spanish class! :) Do your students think all Spanish-speakers eat jalapenos and tortillas? :) I decided I needed to teach them about more traditional foods from the Spanish-speaking world. I started with this worksheet and the accompanying powerpoint.
The ¿Te gustaría comer…? powerpoint presents 7 different traditional dishes from the Spanish-speaking world and their main ingredients. I know - there are so many more! Students will learn what main ingredients are needed to prepare: tortilla espanola, enchiladas, mofongo, causa, gallo pinto, arroz con leche y flan.
Using this worksheet, the powerpoint helps students practice Spanish while expanding their cultural knowledge as well! Students learn how to state whether or not they think they would like the dish, based on its’ main ingredients.
I also use this activity as an introduction to a “recipe research” project, which can be as advanced or as introductory as you like.
Students tend to love learning about new foods and even preparing them for their classmates to try!
