Oda a la cuchara

In my heritage Spanish language classes we have been doing a food unit. I devoted each week to a different theme. Week 1 was foods from the New World, week 2 was Spanish gastronomy, week 3 was healthy eating habits, week 4 was world hunger and Pablo Neruda’s odes to food, and week 5 will be excerpts from the novel Como agua para chocolate.

Here are a couple of resources that I created for my students for the Odas:

Biography of Pablo Neruda and fragments from “Oda a la alcachofa”

Poem “Oda a la cuchara” and comprehension questions:
