Teaching fun

I teach on the outskirts of town in a district called Nanyo. It's a half hour bus ride and we cross the way cool Zhanjiang Bay Bridge. It's surrounded by farmland and some of the kids are farm kids.
Yesterday I was teaching a fourth grade class and we were discussing what animals and foods are grown on farms. Since we are in the tropics, mangoes, bananas and pineapples were mentioned. Then I took a poll of favorite foods. Mango was the favorite plant food.
When it came to meat, chicken was number one. Two sweet faced little girls readily stood up and proclaimed dog to be their favorite meat. Ohkaaaaay!
