Videos everywhere in Quilmes, Argentina.

Ms Lucrecia video recorded some students telling us about the way they celebrate Christmas in Argentina and what they like eating for this celebration

In this Video a girl called Luna is answering a question that has been posed by Anthony from Texas

Could you find any coincidence with the way you celebrate?

Kids in Ms Lucrecia´s class had the great experience of connecting and exchanging ideas about their family traditions at the moment of having a meal and about the traditional recipes they have in their families. Having one class living in Argentina located in South America, and another class in USA located in North America, turns it into a very interesting conversation!

Can we get to know if there are more similarities than differences between these two countries at the moment of cooking and eating? What do you think?


Bernarda, a student in this class got inspired by Agrim (from the Indian class) and decided to transmit some important concepts about food in Argentina.
