Authentic Menu Boards

A collection of fast food menu boards from countries using dollars and cents.

I created this powerpoint to enhance page 88 of the blue sky 1 text.

The menu boards are hyperlinked to the first slide. click on the a restaurant name from the first slide and it will go to the menu board. click anywhere on the menu board slide and it will take you back to the first slide.

I used it to give students more practice using a large variety of prices and items to choose from. I noticed expressing foreign currency can be quite difficult, but is a useful skill.
It can be considered cross curricular as basic math skills are required. It can also be seen as a way to expose students to foreign food items some familiar some quite different. Which makes for conversation starters with students and teachers.

      It works great if you can share the file with the students if students are able to use computers in pairs.
      Students take turns choosing the restaurant, and students modify the dialogue accordingly.
