This activity is a great way to introduce students to making combinations in math. Students are given main and side dish options, and then asked to draw and label the different combinations that are possible. Each worksheet builds upon the last, to help students practice making combinations in a consistent format.
The resource includes 2x1, 2x2, and 2x3 combinations. Two formats are provided for 2x2 and 2x3, which you can use based on your preference. At the end, students can devise their own simple menu and complete the chart to show all the combinations.
I hope you and your students enjoy this resource! As always, I appreciate your ratings and feedback!
