Lunch Box Project - Students Sharing Lunch Globally

The Lunch Box Project is a wiki that was started by an elementary school teacher, Jess Meyer. The idea behind The Lunch Box Project is to have primary grade (K-3) students connect to learn about different languages and cultures. Students and teachers can contribute to the wiki by answering some simple questions about where they are and what they are having for lunch.

Here is a slide show introduction to The Lunch Box Project.


Applications for Education
The Lunch Box Project is a simple and easy way to introduce students to different cultures, languages, and the use of wikis. While The Lunch Box Project is designed for primary school students, the concept would work for older students too. Right now there are pages from Australia, China, and Turkey. I'm sure the addition of pages from other countries would be appreciated.
