Product Description
Food trucks are now the big craze for food lovers. This project based learning idea helps your students design and open their own food truck. They also learn about the foods from different countries, entrepreneurship, and economics. This student-centered PBL unit incorporates collaboration and differentiation by providing student choice. This real-world challenge requires students to use inquiry, critical thinking, and their creative minds during the high-interest cross-curricular activities [math, social studies, ELA]. Students integrate digital learning into the project as they investigate cultures, diversity, and plan their final product.

Students will have an opportunity to represent a country of their choice, design a truck and plan their own menu. This unit is open-ended. Advanced learners can explore more about health standards, local regulations, nutritional content, scale drawings and more… Students can work in collaborative groups or complete as an independent study.

Buyer Feedback
"Used after teaching the components of economics. Students applied what they knew and then held a business expo. We purchased all your "open a..." units! Love!"

"This is such an INCREDIBLE and meaningful activity! I'm so excited to use this with students. They are going to LOVE this PBL. Thank you for all of your hard work!"

"Our district's initiative this year is PBL and this one is awesome! It also has given me a great visual about what PBL looks like."


"I used this with my High School Culinary Arts class as a fun project. Even though it is designed for younger students, it is easy to use as a starting point, and supplement with other material to up the level. They were very into it, and got very creative designing their trucks. Thank you!"
