I’ve created this unit so that I can teach the students in my Life Skills class how to make a few simple meals independently. I wanted them to have at least one breakfast recipe, one lunch recipe, one dinner recipe, and then two snacks. By breaking these recipes down to the least amount of instructions, our students will have a better chance of being able to complete the recipe on their own.
Each recipe includes ingredients in the “Newspaper” sections, so that you can also have the students go “shopping” before they cook. This way they can see how much their recipe is going to cost before they make it. This is also helpful if you don’t live near a grocery store, as you can simulate the different sections of a store with the different areas of the ads.
By using a pre-made newspaper grocery section, you will know that all ingredients on the recipe will be there! (Many times I’ve had the students look through regular newspaper ads, only to find very few ingredients they were looking for!). The 6 worksheets are all different from one another, so you can let everyone work on their own (In case you have students who like to copy the person next to them!).
