What We’re Watching–Food Fight

An abridged history of American-centric warfare, from WWII to present day, told through the foods of the countries in conflict.

I’ve learned not to underestimate the power that fun and humor has on my kid’s learning. So, I present our very loose study on American-centric warfare. We came across this on YouTube, where we have supervised time all together searching for different things. We favorite the ones that we want to watch again on our youtube page here. I don’t even remember how we happened upon this, but it’s our favorite now.

We haven’t looked at the cheat sheats yet, we’re still trying to reason it out by the clues…what foods are allies, what foods are from which region, etc. Some, like the croissants and the sushi rolls, are easier than others. (What is a hoagie? Triscuit? Shishkebob?) Luckily, Golfer has been reading a lot about WWII, been playing a lot of WWI & II video games, and watching a lot of the show “Dogfights“, so he has a lot of input for us.

  1. I love it! I actually had a professor who taught WW1 and French revolution history through food. Too cool.
