ISW students in Mr. Harmon’s G6 World Geography class have been hard at work making empanadas. At the end of their two week lesson unit about South America, students got to experience some of the South American cuisine. Mr. Harmon’s wife, who spent time studying abroad in Bolivia, came into the classroom to help teach the students about empanadas.
The students began with a small ball of dough that they flattened out into small discs. Then the students put cheese in the center of the ball and folded them up. Mrs. Harmon showed the Bolivian way to fold the edges.
After they had prepared the Empanadas they gave them to Mr. Harmon to cook them. The Empanadas got nice and crispy brown on the outside. The students then sprinkled a little bit of powdered sugar on top to finish them off.
Mr. Harmon and the students enjoyed making and eating these traditional south American snacks. For more about ISW follow us on WeChat and check our website at iswuxi.com.
