Students will develop menus for a large dinner party for under a set budget. They will brainstorm creative money-saving tricks when it comes to food, research recipes, tweak recipes to work for a large party, work with community experts, create a budget-friendly menu, and share their product with an authentic audience. This project is low-prep and free as long as students have access to a computer and the internet. Students will lead; you will facilitate.
*Note: This is not a cooking project unless you want it to be one. Students are not expected to cook their meals. They are hypothetical. They will create a menu that could be used by their authentic audience. The cover photo for this resource is the authentic presentation that my students chose.
The idea behind this resource and all resources under my "Maker PBL" product line is to merge the effective learning principles of project-based learning with design thinking. Each project requires exploration, inquiry, brainstorming, trial, and error, problem-solving, the assistance of community experts, authentic presentations and innovative outcomes. Students are actively engaged throughout the project process because it is student-centered in nature.
