Students at Harrison High School who are enrolled in the Spanish 2 course immersed themselves in authentic Latino food, language, and culture while on a field trip to Port Chester, New York.
In conjunction with the Spanish 2 "Comida" (Food) unit, students participated in numerous activities that reinforced the learnings of food and food products, shopping, dining and eating experiences. When living in a foreign country or even developing a greater understanding of cultures in our own or nearby communities, these everyday activities can sometimes feel overwhelming.
Their first stop was a scavenger hunt conducted in Spanish, at La Placita Supermercado, a local grocery store. There the students raced to take search for information and to take photo selfies with certain products they had learned about in class.
After the scavenger hunt, students ate lunch at "Pollo a la Brasa", a local Peruvian restaurant, and then feasted on dessert at Peleteria Fernandez, a local ice cream shop.
