Lesson 2: Food: What the World Eats

Monday, March 07, 2011 | posted by Edward Branagan | 3 Comments



All humans need food to survive. There are foods we like and there are foods we dislike. Have you ever wondered what other people in the world eat? Have you ever wondered what other students eat? Let's explore.


Primary school students eating lunch at Mae Na Jan School in Thailand.


At Mae Na Jan school in Thailand, we eat many different types of food. Here are some pictures of what we eat.

Rice, hot dog, egg plant soup, and orange candy (Mae Na Jan School)


Hard-boiled eggs, potatoes, and meat (Huay Pung Mai)

These are some dishes that teachers eat at my school.

Teacher lunch: Fried fish, cucumber and tofu, chili sauce, and rice.

We have a few questions for you:
  1. What do you eat for lunch?
  2. Where do you eat?
  3. How do you prepare your food?
  4. Who prepares your food?
  5. Do you want to try any of our foods? If so, which ones?
  6. What foods are you afraid to eat?
