So a couple years ago I went to the world market and bought a candy (bar/box) from about 7 different countries. I broke them up and the three kids and I sampled pieces and and wiki'd each country! Listening t the national anthem. Seeing where the country was located. Looking at pictures from them. It was so much fun! The kids LOVED it!
Well this year my girls are doing 7th grade and there is a bunch og geography so I thought to expand on the candy with the Olympics. So want to pick X amount of countries and Y amount of events and take the two weeks to follow these countries and their people, cook traditional meals, and learn more about them. I MAY have gotten in over my head! I have an Armenian friend and one from Nicaragua. So I can get first hand, NON wiki, sources of info!
So here is my need/thought from yall!
1) Anyone want to attempt this with me?
2) Anyone who is from, or has family from, a competing country that can give me recipes or info?
3)Any tips or ideas to get me more focused?
Thank yall SO much for any tips/help!
