The third grade classes had an international festival right in our classrooms!  Students brought in items from home that represented their culture.  Students also brought in a food to share that was important to their cultures.  First, students took turns sharing their cultural items with each other and reading some of the written work they did on these items and their cultures.  Then they explained the dishes that they brought to one another.  We finished off the celebration by trying out different foods from different cultures!
