Week 9: The Sandwich Swap

This is a great story about two friends who like to do many things together - jump rope, draw pictures, play on the swings, etc. One day they notice that the sandwiches they eat are different from one another. When they realize that they each eat different kinds of food, they begin making fun of each other. This is a great story to lead off a discussion about differences. Sandwiches are very personal to each family/person and beginning a discussion with how sandwiches are eaten in each family could provide an avenue for a discussion about bigger cultural differences between people. Students could also draw/write about what makes their sandwiches special. This could lead to a discussion about healthy eating and food groups/nutrition.
