Product Description
PROJECT BASED LEARNING (PBL): OPEN AND DESIGN A FOOD TRUCK : Food trucks are now the big craze for food lovers. As 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.

This Open a Food Truck PBL unit incorporates 21st Century skills with challenging, engaging, and creative activities.

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.

"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!"
