Martic 3rd Graders Make an International Holiday Feast

Students in Mrs. Bohannon’s and Mrs. Frese’s third grade classes prepared an international holiday feast as a culminating lesson for their cultures unit. The students made woven Kwanzaa placemats for the table setting and decorated with Danish woven basket ornaments, Chinese New Year dragons, as well as Mexican pinatas and poinsettias. For their feast, they prepared Pennsylvania Dutch soft pretzels, latkes (potato pancakes) from their study on Israel and Hanukkah, fresh butter and homemade applesauce. The students squeezed oranges and lemons to make orange-lemonade and decorated Christmas cookies for dessert.
