In this lesson, students listen to a reading of the popular folktale “Stone Soup.” They then reflect on what the story says about the importance of food and sharing, to communities and cultures. Next, they practice self-reflection as they examine their own food preferences and how they came to form those preferences. In a variety of rich extension opportunities, students demonstrate how they can use food to share of themselves and to enrich their local and global communities.

Key objectives for students
Analyze what a traditional folktale says about the value of sharing food with one’s community.
Reflect on and share some personal food preferences.
Recognize how culture and family traditions influence food choices in a community.
