Here is a PAIR ACTIVITY for you to use with your students. Encourage oral (English!) participation as the students work with each other.

  1. TITLE: «CLASSIFICATION« ACTIVITY

     INTENDED FOR: PAIRS: Grades 3rd – 8th, depending on English and math levels

SUGGESTED TIME: 15 to 45 minutes, depending on the activity chosen.

INSTRUCTIONS:

Try to have the students work with these words using an iPad. Some of the activities can be done using an iPad. If you don’t have access, or if the words can’t be cut & pasted easily, no problem. PLAN B: Scan, copy, print, then, cut out the words of food items as shown below. Place the 54 food-words in an envelope. The same words can be used for various pair activities, as suggested below. I suggest one envelope of word-sets for every two students. (30 students = 15 envelopes)

(A) Arrange the words in any order you want. Then the teacher will ask each team to tell how they organized the words. Think outside the box…the more unusual way to organize the words, the better!

(B) Put the food words into alphabetical order. This could be a race with teacher writing the time of the first 5 pairs to complete the exercise.

(C) Prepare a menu for a home dinner, using some of these foods.

(D) Prepare a restaurant menu using these foods. Remember to put realistic prices. You can use drawings and/or magazine cut-outs to design an attractive menu.

(E) Using the restaurant menu, make a food order for 2 adults and 2 children, ages 8 and  14. Add up the total price. Then multiply by 8% to get the tax. Add the tax amount to the total order amount, to obtain the full cost of the meal for 4 people.        Remember to use realistic food prices.

 

(F) Design a grocery store floor plan.  Illustrate where you would place all these foods in the store, so that it is well-organized. You can make drawings and/ or use magazine cut-outs to decorate your floor plan.

 

(G) Make a Venn diagram (two overlapping circles). Write above one circle :»Foods I like.». The second circle should be labeled, «Foods my Pair-Partner likes.» The place/space where the two circles overlap, should be labeled, «Foods We Both Like».    Then divide the food words into these 3 categories.

 

(H) RESEARCH: Where did “VENN DIAGRAM” originate? How did they get the name “VENN”?  Who spread the idea of the Venn Diagram? Can you find other information about Venn diagrams? Can you think of how a world map could be used for this exercise? If so, provide a blank world map, and color-in the countries related to what you found in your research. Include a key on your map to explain.
