What people eat around the world

Jamie Keddie tweeted this link on Twitter a couple of weeks ago. It’s a set of pictures published by Time magazine showing families from around the family with all of the food they eat in a week laid out around them. The pictures are absolutely fascinating, not just because of the food but also because of where the photos are taken, and I think would make a really rich source of material for your classroom. They are taken from the book Hungry Planet by Peter Menzel and Faith D’Aluisio.

What would you do with these pictures in your classroom? You can make any assumptions you like about the context they are used in. Post your ideas in the comments below. All ideas are welcome (there are no wrong answers!)
