Though I’d love to take all my students abroad to experience life in other cultures, the more realistic option is to bring the world to our classroom. I’ve written before about using restaurant resources as the foundation of a novice level food unit–find the Subway menu activities for free here.
Having had the opportunity to travel recently, I have added a new activity to the collection: an interpretive and cultural activity pack around going to Five Guys in Madrid. You can find it here. While we work with iconic foods in Spanish-speaking countries throughout the unit, this activity is a fun, strong hook for a food/dining unit for novices. Enjoy!
