I taught 18-21 year olds for several years, and we spent a lot of time in the community. Community-based instruction is valuable for generalizing academic skills, and it also offers gifts of unplanned, unexpected teaching moments, too, doesn't it?
A weekly activity was to plan a menu, go grocery shopping, make lunch, and clean up. Other days, we practiced shopping or price checking at drug stores, party supply stores, and discount stores. We went out for lunch at a variety of restaurants and experienced different ways to order and get food. We read various menus and chose healthy foods. To prepare for community outings, many of these lessons can be completed online or in a classroom store.
A note about formatting: I intentionally do not make thick lines or large print in my products for two reasons: 1. They are meant to look age appropriate for teens, and 2. The lines will not use up as much ink toner.
This is a packet that you can use over and over in multiple ways, described in the detailed lesson plans.
