¿Qué te gusta comer esta semana? - Planning a week's menu and grocery list activity.
This is a great activity that guides students in planning a weekly menu for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Students have flexibility to write about what they like to eat and what they typically eat in the course of one week.
The second part of this activity has students plan out grocery lists based on their weekly menus. While creating the grocery lists, students categorize the foods on their lists and deconstruct what goes into certain dishes that they plan to eat during the week.
For this activity, I use the local grocery store flyers or grocery store flyers in Spanish and have students plan and look up prices for their grocery list items. Students could also use local grocery store websites to access this week's food advertisements and sales.
