Who's Your Mama
This game helps preschoolers learn where their food comes from. Try to focus on traditional foods that are consumed in your community.
Food from lunches or photographs of food items: vegetables and fruit; meats, fish, or proteins; plain milk; cheeses
How to Play
- One at a time, the teacher will hold up a food or photograph or picture of a food and ask “Who’s your Mama?”
- Children will call out where the food comes from. If it’s a vegetable or fruit, maybe its mama is the ground or a tree. If it’s cheese, it comes from a cow. Try to use whole foods and no processed foods. Do a few practice rounds to get the language down.
