Food and Culture - a global, collaborative classrooms project

Let your students learn with the world, not just about the world!


This project is designed to be adaptable to any course, any grade level or schedule, so you can schedule a class period per week, or do a several week unit, a year long unit, or adopt this as an After School Program or a Service Learning Project!

In addition to offering a 21st century unit of curriculum that is project-based and hands-on, it is also rigorous, relevant and real-world. Not only will your students learn the content standards and basic skills at higher levels, they will develop critical 21st century skills and global competencies.

This project is not just for Family and Consumer Science classes! If you teach math, science, history, geography, literature, world languages, economics, political science, anthropology, media studies, botany, agriculture, culinary arts, business, physics, chemistry, from PK to PhD - - it's all here.

Please join us, and please help us get the word out by posting information about this project on all your social networks!

See the Food and Culture Wix which provides details on the inspirations for this project as well as the foundations for the curriculum including Tony Wagner's 7 Survival Skills for 21st Century Teens, the United Nations Development Goals, Global Competencies and Common Core Curriculum Standards.

For more information please see the Food and Culture web site

Food is culture - Introducing the newest, most exciting global classrooms project online to date!
Join now, and be prepared to get your students engaged, motivated and learning with this platform for rigorous, relevant and real-world curriculum.


Can you imagine how excited and motivated your students will be as they collaborate with students in classrooms in other countries? We will provide you with many ideas for class, whether you're PK, high school or university. This entry point - food - has been the common factor in socialization and community building for thousands of years. But we don't have to stay focused just on food. This unit will expand into many directions, and you and your students will choose which possibilities to explore.

While younger students will focus on getting to know and love nature, gardening, cooking, nutrition and fitness, as well as cultural studies, the development of multiple literacies (such as financial literacy, media literacy, ecoliteracy and many more) older students will also be able to explore McDonaldization, Media Literacy, food marketing ( such as Whole Foods, a gourmet grocery store), health issues, hunger, cultural similarities and
differences, traditions, economics, agriculture, food production, law, environmental studies, cookbooks, literature, celebrations of life and death and everything in between - all these topics and many more are
connected to Food and Culture.

Everyone eats. People around the world differ in many ways, but dinner unites us all.

"My preference is this website is best. Twitter is used for social purpose and EDUPLN is used for professional discussion which you cannot discuss on social platforms."
