My goodness! I hope you are hungry when you visit our classroom! The dramatic play center has been re-invented with the simple addition of a basket of blank menus. During a morning meeting last week, we talked about creating a dinosaur restaurant and realized we’d need two separate menus, one for carnivores and one for herbivores. This sparked some interest in what other types restaurants we could open. Some of the suggestions included well-known burger joints as well as menus devoted entirely to: tiger food, ice cream, bugs (I’m still unsure whether they meant food FOR bugs, or bugs to EAT), food for pets, fruit only fare, and even menus consisting entirely of candy.
Menu production began immediately and has continued with added gusto each day. Here are the first two menus. One includes prices while the other leaves it up to the customer to decide how much to pay.
