A project for students to create a menu and food truck model for Five Wonders Theme Park, based on the Frida’s Fiesta menu.
Welcome to Five Wonders Theme Park, the best theme park in the entire world!
This teaching resource is a cross over activity of our Five Wonders Theme Park and Frida’s Fiesta Stimulus projects. In this scenario, the current Mexican food truck at Five Wonders is not doing so well, so Frida’s Fiesta has bought the spot and has hired you to create a food truck version of the restaurant. The aim of this project is for student to use their own knowledge and ideas to craft a fast food menu for a food truck based on the menu at Frida’s Fiesta. Students will get the opportunity to:
- design a menu
- set a pricing budget
- design and build their own food truck.
Students will get the chance to study both Five Wonders Theme Park eating places and how they are competitively priced. Then using the Frida’s Fiesta menu to design a mini menu that would suit a food truck environment and compete against the other eateries in the theme park. Students will get to learn and reflect about real world scenarios, such as competitive marketing and luring consumers to choose their product. At the end of this project, students should have an attractive menu and a physical food truck model designed from the food truck template included int his project.
