Designing a new menu l.jpg
Designing a New Menu:

  • Today, you and your classmates are in charge of designing a new menu for your school lunches!

  • One catch - it must be healthy!!!

  • Second catch – no single student can decide this on his or her own. This will be a group effort!

Round 1 choosing the categories l.jpg
Round 1: Choosing the Categories

  • Role = Lead Chef

  • Examine the menu options.

  • Debate amongst yourselves, and then CIRCLE the 5 categories for your menu upon which you can all agree.

  • Remember, it must be healthy!


Round 2 creating the menu l.jpg
Round 2: Creating the Menu

  • Role: The Writers

  • Using the categories that the “Lead Chef” developed, you are to choose what foods to serve.

  • Tip: Your menu must match the categories that the writers created.


Round 3 move forward or try again l.jpg
Round 3: Move Forward or Try Again?

  • Role = Lead Chef

  • If you agree with what the WRITERS came up with, vote YES for the menu to be made.

  • If you do not like what the WRITERS decided, vote NO. This is a VETO!


Round 4 where to go now l.jpg
Round 4: Where to go now?

  • If the Lead Chef said YES, your menu is one step closer to being made!

  • If the Lead Chef said NO, then the WRITERS must vote again on the menu.

  • If everyone likes the menu you created, it moves ahead.

  • If everyone does not agree, you would try again to write something the Lead Chef would agree with. However, there is not time for this today.


Round 5 evaluating the results l.jpg
Round 5: Evaluating the Results

  • Role: The Judge

  • You have 2 important responsibilities:

  • Decide what “healthy” means.

    (2)Decide if the school lunch menu meets your definition of healthy.


Final result will your lunch be made l.jpg
Final Result: Will your lunch be made?

  • Raise your hand if your lunch will be made?

  • Raise your hand if your lunch will NOT be made?
