Southern Food Day

My English 9 classes just finished reading my favorite classic novel, "To Kill A Mockingbird." We only have a few days of school left, so we are watching the video the rest of this week. But to make things more exciting we had a southern food day to kick off the film. The book is filled with references to foods, so as we read we kept track of these and the kids could bring an item that was mentioned in the book or bring food that is southern in nature. Here are the different things we had today"
  • Sweet potato pie
  • Crawdads
  • Angel food cake
  • Corn bread
  • Apple butter
  • Molasses
  • Butter beans
  • Collard greens
  • Corn
  • Lemonade
  • Sweet tea
  • Tootsie rolls
  • Salt water taffy
  • Squaw corn
  • Gumbo
  • Tea donuts
  • Pickled okra
  • Sweet pickles
  • Coca Cola
Overall it was a hit! I loved watching the kids try new things :)

These are the crawdads that a student brought....they were delicious!
