CHOPPED Competition for World Geography!

Students excitedly participated in a simulated "Chopped" competition, in which teams of four had to research regional foods of a civilization studied in World Geography this year. They had 15 minutes to create a "meal idea" with at least 4 main regional foods grown and/or eaten in their civilization, construct a Google Slide to present their meal idea with an enticing explanation, and post their idea to our Google Classroom Collaborative Group for other students to comment and vote on the best meal!  Then, as part of our cross-curricular GMO PBL, students brainstormed how to insert a modern-day GMO into their meal to address the problem in their civilization (Example:  drought-resistant corn to address drought in the Mayan Empire).  Check out the creativity below!
