FREE Printable: Restaurant Menu Activity

restaurantmenu

I’m on a mission to create some hands-on tasks by replicating activities from workbooks.  The WALC 4 has various menu worksheets but using actual menus is more realistic and functional.  Next time you are out running errands, stop in and pick up a menu from a few local restaurants.  Laminate them and voila! You’ve got a new activity for targeting a variety of skills.  See the list below for some ideas.
