Photographing what we eat for breakfast

Greek yoghurt with muesli; black coffee…

Here's an idea that comes from IH Barcelona's Spanish Teacher Training blog — getting your learners to photograph the week's shopping (information in Spanish).

As you can see from the photo above, a possible variation might be photographing what they have for breakfast, with the idea being to post the pictures on a class blog. I'd suggest that there's a lot of mileage to be had out of discussing such things as a healthy diet, ranking who eats the healthiest breakfast (etc.), particularly if your learners are from a variety of origins, and — once again — the fun of creating something together appeals more than the exercises on food in my coursebook.

The idea came from a wonderful exhibition by US photographer Peter Menzel, in which the week's shopping was photographed along with the families from around the world that bought and consumed it.
