Egypt - Food Passport

To begin our passport of flavors we started with Egypt.... Here are some things we covered this week. 

  • Writing in Hieroglyphics (the boys made place cards for our meal with our names written in hieroglyphics) 
  • Making Egyptian necklaces (pictured above) 
  • Finding Egypt on our world map (we also located Cairo and the Nile River)
  • Listening to words spoken in Arabic
  • Learning about mummies and King Tut (we also drew pictures of him) 
  • Suez Canal
  • Currency in Egypt
  • Reviewed Ancient Egypt's history 
  • Different types of food found in Egypt
  • Talked about Egypt's culture
  • Took an online tour of places in Egypt
  • Egypt's Flag (The flag of Egypt (Egyptian Arabic: علم مصر‎‎, IPA: [ˈʕælæm ˈmɑsˤɾ]) is a tricolour consisting of the three equal horizontal red, white, and black bands of the Arab Liberation flag dating back to the Egyptian Revolution of 1952. The flag bears Egypt's national emblem, the Eagle of Saladin centered in the white band.)

After spending the week learning all about Egypt, it was time for our meal! Our menu included:
  • Bechamel Pasta  
  • Gebna Makleyah (cheese balls)
  • Biram Ruz (rice casserole)
  • Baklava (sweet pastry with chopped nuts, covered in honey)

It was truly an adventure trying the different types of food. After voting we all agreed the Bechamel Pasta was the best dish and the worst was Biram Ruz (it just lacked any type of flavor). The boys had a blast learning more about Egypt and trying some authentic cuisine. 

Next up......  ITALY (EUROPE)
