Creator of ClassTools.net, @RusselTarr, tweeted this site the other day. My 1st graders have been studying countries around the world, and we have recently been discussing foods. They really enjoyed “Don’t Gross Out the World,” from FunBrain because they thought many of the cultural traditions were unbelievable. For example, how can it be true that some people think that it’s a compliment to burp loudly after a meal? Or, that asking for catsup could possibly be an insult in some countries? I learned a few new things myself by playing this game with the class 🙂
UPDATE 5/8/18: This site does not seem to be available any longer. However, I found a screencast that someone made of the game that is a decent substitute.
UPDATE 3/31/21: Thanks to a comment from FunBrain, I found out the site has been brought back! I’ve updated the link above to take you there.
