Great for literature circles, choice reading assessment, and class novels, the literary food truck festival brings literary analysis in culinary form. Get ready for a mouth-watering and colorful day of critical thinking when the food truck festival arrives in your classroom.
*Updated for 2020-2021: Now you can also use the brand new digital version of this curriculum set, linked in the Zip file you'll see after you purchase. Students can brainstorm and create their trucks online.
If you and your students are a bit tired of writing (and grading) essays, and you could use a chance to think deeply in a brand new (STEAM-y) way, this project is for you. Students dive deep into textual analysis, then share their ideas with a themed food truck instead of a five paragraph essay.
You'll find everything you need to walk students through planning and designing their food trucks so they closely reflect their reading, then you can all smile your way through a special day together.
