The international Food Festival in December, along with the visit to Hangzhou Food Museum, was an extension of classroom teaching on the topic of “Food and Countries”. After the museum visit, the children developed a real interest in international food resulting in the Food Festival that was held on December 5th. It was a gastronomic exhibition that showcased a rich variety of traditional cuisines of different nations, including Chinese tanghulu, Japanese sushi, Korean barbecue, American hot chocolate, Romanian sarmarle, Iranian potato salads, Indian veggie rolls, and many more.
The currency for buying the food was the “sun coins” that the children earned by completing certain tasks. Customers speaking English were offered a 50% discount. Parents, teachers and the children all had great fun.
