Wednesday, I had a conversation with several college age foreign exchange students representing South Korea, Japan and Taiwan. A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure to chat with two other foreign exchange students from El Salvador and Indonesia. Although the students appreciate the holiday, they couldn’t help but also giggle about our annual turkey celebration. Many of these students live in dorms or apartments and found out last year that they just couldn’t think of enough creative ways to eat and use all of the left over turkey. So, we had some fun discussing various ways to prepare the leftovers, plus talked a bit about their favorite dish and holiday traditions.
You, too, can plan a day to have a multicultural turkey celebration. Plan a unit study for your children focusing on maybe three countries at a time.
