I assigned the project after Christmas. We spent time as a class checking out the instruction package and looking at the sample ideas that were included. We planned our “feast” for just before the March Break, and let me tell you I was BLOWN-AWAY by what my students created! The project was an absolute HIT with my class!

We set up the projects at individual desks, I put on some restaurant music to set the mood, told my kiddos to grab a writing “utensil”, and they spent nearly an hour and a half (I kid you not!) “tasting” each project. The best part – I was able to circulate at the same time and I got every project marked!!

Take a look at what they created. There was pizza…
