If you are studying countries or cultures this year (all of your Five in a Row fans, take note), you might want to take a field trip to Cost Plus World Market. You can stop, shop, go (home), and eat your way around the world!
We visited last week on the look-out for some foods for Elijah’s display table for an upcoming Geography Fair. We left with some candy for his table and other items from various countries will we be studying this year with Five in a Row.
Sweden ~ we actually aren’t studying Sweden this year, but Elijah really wanted to try these. He said we could have a Sweden themed tea-time. Who can argue with that?
Canada ~ Elijah can put these candies on his display table for the Geography Fair.
Italy ~ We make two stops in Italy this year as we go through some Five in a Row units. We hope to re-row Papa Piccolo and Clown of God. We made sure we had a few items from Italy: lemon wafer cookies, Italian raspberry soda, and the prettiest pasta I’ve ever seen.
Japan ~ We also hope to re-row A Pair of Red Clogs. We found two sweet treats to go-along.
England ~ We will probably use the marmalade (see the teeny tiny jar in the first picture of this post) for a tea-time treat. The Curlywurly bar (isn’t that fun to say!?!) might just be used in an emergency, or I will save it for when we row How to Make an Apple Pie and See the World.
