We do a few activities on entertaining throughout the year. In this activity we are pretending we are having company come to our home for lunch. The students have to make a grocery list by using the recipe cards attached. Go to the grocery store with your list and find the items you have listed. Add your totals when you get back to class. Would even be fun, financing available, to put the students into groups of 5 and let them buy the ingredients and create the meal. We do another activity similar to this, where the students create their own menu for a pretend dinner party. We go over all the things that would make a meal from drinks, salad, soups, main dishes and desserts. They cut pictures from the abundance of food magazines we have and paste their menu to paper. The menus range from mac and cheese with Hot Pockets to prime rib and brussel sprouts! It is a lot of fun!
