This curriculum project allows students in the Kindergarten to 1st grade to tie in their own culture with Korean cuisine as they explore the history of Bibimbap.
Hello Haena! I try to introduce my students to the major East Asian countries of Japan, South Korea, North Korea, and China. I am always looking for new lessons I can do with each of these countries. Even though your lesson is based on a kindergarten class, I can use many of the resources you provided in my third grade classroom. I especially appreciated the video watching someone prepare Bibimbap and the paper cut outs of the ingredients. Even though my students are older, they will still get a kick out of putting their ingredients into the stone bowl one by one! While I do not see me doing any real cooking in the classroom, I can see where watching the video and discussing the many new ingredients will be another way for my students to appreciate the Korean culture. Thank you!
