I am a student at the University of South Alabama, College of Education. My husband Brian and I have been married since 2004, and in 2010 welcomed our son Deigan. I also work full-time as the Marketing Specialist for a local Real Estate company.
Gobble Gobble 'till you Wobble Thanksgiving Project
In this Project Based Learning activity, students will be paired with a partner and together they will use a local grocery store advertisement to shop for food items to be served at their families Thanksgiving dinner. They will be given a budget of how much money can be spent at the store for their family dinner. They will be responsible for adding up the total cost of the meal and then determine the amount of change that they will receive. The students will be required to include at least one item from each food group based on the Food Pyramid diagram. They will then create a Google presentation to present to the class. Their presentation must include the Food Pyramid diagram, photos of the food items and a breakdown of the total amount spent. At the end of the presentations, the class will discuss each menu and vote on which meal sounds the best!
