One of my favorite working software programs, Pixie is not only versatile but quite creative. I vouch that all my students, younger and older, love to use it.
For this project, I saved a template where the students will describe in detail what their restaurant will be like. As they opened the template they were able to pre-read and answer.
After this, they were linked to http://www.mydressupgames.com. Look under “decoration games”, and select the SECOND page. There will be the restaurant game there. Go to:: http://www.mydressupgame.com/decoration-games/restaurant-decorating-game.html
Allow students to fill out the information prior to moving to http://www.mmydressupgames. This way they will already know what to look for.
Afterwards, they created a menu based on what they said about their restaurant. My older students looked for pictures on Google using filters. This one I had made before and I am re-posting as an example.
- Using Spanish terms, they all received a budget of an average of $10 each.
- Within that limit, they were asked to make orders.
- Then they paid with fake money and practiced making change.
