Have you had authentic Pad Thai? Or tasted the national dish of Peru, the delectably zesty and spicy Ceviche? Do you have a favourite Shanghainese dumpling place in the city? Or perhaps know a family friend who makes the best Hyderabadi Biryani in your neck of the woods?

Kids are naturally inquisitive and one of the most amazing and diverse areas of exploration is world cuisine. This printable activity is to help bring together students and children from all cultures to share (with a little friendly competition) what they know about cuisines from around the world!

Printable & Activity Objectives

Age: 6 to 9 year olds, Activity Time: 1-2 hours, Items Needed: Writing pencils

In this activity, children or students will be able to practice their knowledge of popular food and dishes from cuisines found around the world through a fun naming game.

It will help your child or student:

  • Develop an openness to new food from another country and potentially cultivate interest in its history, language and cultural norms.
  • Take stock of the food and the different cultures they're familiar with. Ideally, it will also help to expand their knowledge by discussing their answers with their friends.

Let's find out who's the biggest world foodie out there!
