In this activity, students will begin planning menus for some possible children's meals. Assist students as they work, and remind them that their meals will need to fulfill the criteria that they previously recorded in their Engineering Portfolios. Encourage students to look back in their portfolios or conduct additional research to find the information they need to develop ideas for their meals.
Encourage students to visit a local grocery store to estimate costs for their ingredients. You may also want to post average prices for the food that students are using. Remind students that the cost to produce their meal should not exceed $6 for one serving.
