This menu activity aligns to the Engage NY curriculum for Module 2A Lyddie by Katherine Patterson. Menu activities allow for multiple entry points into a lesson. Students are given various choices that can appeal to all learners. I have found that my 7th grade students are usually disinterested in Lyddie, however giving them these types of activities helps to keep them interested and motivated. For this menu activity students have already read chapters 1-5 and completed readers notes from Engage Ny. If you are not using this curriculum with your students, you can change the appetizer activity to a summary of the chapter.
