Peanut Butter and Jelly!
Augusta Gonzalez did a workshop for the students of Kids Culture Club on a very traditional sandwich in the US, the peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Augusta read a poem about peanut butter by the author, Shel Silverstein, as well as a book called, “Bread and Jam for Frances.” The children sang a song instructing how to make peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, then made their own sandwiches to eat. They have also learned that it takes 540 peanuts to make a jar of peanut butter!
