Whatever resources you need for the variety of activities you are offering.
What to do:
Lay out the classroom like a restaurant!
Tables can be in pairs? Groups? But have banqueting paper on the tables. And Paper plates.
Students to then be handed a menu!
The menu should contain:
3 Starters/Mains/Desserts- Extra Hot/ Medium/ Mild
Extra Hot- High Ability
Medium- Middle Ability
Mild- Low Ability
The aim of the lesson is for students to have complete choice of their tasks.
They should pick the tasks based on their current/target levels.
The tasks- should be the same- but differentiated in Chilli order.
The tasks themselves are totally up to you- can be for any subject/any age. The aim is choice.
Get students to write on the banqueting paper. Use the Paper plates to write on too.
Involve numeracy by putting a price next to each of the activities and ask students to pay for the amount they have completed.
Students can create meals for each others- create their own menus?
The Teacher doesn't have to play the role of the waiter- they could play the role of the restaurant owner. So instead of handing out the menus- other students can do this… and the teacher just facilitates the waiter in ensuring all the customers are happy/on track!
