Here are some ways your family can learn about other religions and cultures. What ideas can you come up with?
Take a field trip around your town or city. How many types of churches do you see? Is there one you can go inside?
Check out books from the library about other cultures and religions.
Make a recipe from another country.
Look up what holidays happen this month. Is there one your family wants to celebrate?
Invite a family in your neighborhood to dinner or dessert. Learn about what you have in common with them.
These potato pancakes (pronounced lot-kuz) are made to celebrate the Jewish holiday Hanukkah. Serve them plain or with sour cream and applesauce. Be sure to get an adult’s help. (Makes about 12 small latkes.)
1 large baking potato, peeled
1 small onion, peeled
1/4 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 large egg
oil, for frying
Shred the potato and onion in a food processor or with a hand grater. Wrap the shredded potato and onion in a clean cloth and squeeze dry.
Mix the flour, salt, pepper, and egg in a large bowl. Stir in the potato and onion.
Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a frying pan on medium. Drop spoonfuls of batter into the pan and flatten them with a spatula.
Cook until the edges are golden brown, then flip and cook until the bottom is brown. Drain on paper towels. Cook the rest of the batter, adding oil as needed.
