Student groups are each assigned a region experiencing a humanitarian crisis for research. They produce a visual timeline representing the processes precipitating and leading up to the crisis and the relief efforts undertaken in response. As a final project, each group produces an infographic representing a theme or a typology it observes across the different crises explored throughout the timeline exercise.
Introduction/Background: Christina Warinner from the University of Oklahoma uses this interactive cooking activity to expose students to traditional Mesoamerican foods. Students will understand how much labor was necessary to craft these foods during their cultural exploration.
