A project where students can explore different dietary requirements and the types of food that cater for them.
Welcome to Frida’s Fiesta, the world’s greatest Mexican-style restaurant.
This teaching resource is a project designed to put students comprehension and measurement skills to the test. The manager at Frida’s Fiesta has requested help in making a layout for the restaurants opening. The manager has a list of furniture replacing requests, but is flexible with other decisions. Students will need to read their step by step instructions carefully and apply their measurement and fraction knowledge to figure out where everything goes.
