Students in Ann Marie Badke’s French class at Seaton Elementary wrapped their minds and mouths around a bit of French culture Tuesday morning. Each student had the opportunity to sample a delicacy the French call “escargot”; to the rest of us, they are the somewhat less-sophisticated-sounding “snails.”
Most of the students who tried the appetizer, served with butter, garlic and French bread, said it tasted pretty good.
After the taste testing, Mrs. Badke did a lesson on the history of escargot as an appetizer.
Seaton students in the third and fourth grades are required to take a foreign language. In fifth grade, they have the option to continue with their foreign language learning.
