LANGUAGE ARTS
Write a report or create a PowerPoint on the various types of Hispanic peppers using a montage of pictures and words.

Create recipe cards with montage images used to identify the different peppers used in the ingredients and have a cook-off. See if the contestants can match a pepper montage card to the correct recipe.
