    Restaurant Menu Project
    By luv2teachkids

    Clip to ScrapBook
    You could have the kids design a menu for a themed restaurant. You could set the criteria for how many of each type of item (appetizers, beverages, main dishes, etc.) they have to have. Then they could write word problems using their menu. It could be very basic, just adding prices of different items, to more complex problems, like figuring the cost of a meal for you and a friend plus tax or figuring the cost of the meal for your grandma with her senior discount of 10%.

    When I did this with middle school students, they really got into the theme, and I saw everything from Star Wars themed diners to Italian restaurants to a Math Cafe.
