This fun and colorful food project provides additional writing practice and vocabulary reinforcement during your food topic unit. The results will produce beautiful meal and placemat settings for display on your classroom walls. As an additional benefit, your students will also create a supply of meal plate realia to serve up during classroom conversation roleplays!
The place setting can be a single project/craft type activity or part of your larger food unit for conversation and testing. This particular menu activity is designed for use with first level learners and can be modified for use with younger students.
