Appetizing Adjectives Activity
RUBRIC

The Menu must:
1. Have the name of the Restaurant
2. Restaurant Picture or Logo on the front of the Menu
3. Contact Information of the Restaurant: Example: Days Open, Hours Open, Telephone Number, etc

You must pick at least 8-10 foods to put on your menu! Remember: You cannot just say cheeseburger; you have to use at least one adjective to name the cheeseburger. You then need to use lots of descriptive words that briefly describe what the dish is.

Example:

Big Bubbaís Junkyard Burger
This burger is only for the Big Boys. It has 3 beef patties, 2 American cheese Slices, Lettuce, Pickle, Tomato, and Mayo. Try it with French Fries and Baked Beans. Itís great!


You can use foods that are: appetizers, breakfast foods, lunch foods, kidís foods, dinner foods, finger foods, beverages (NO ALCOHOL), desert foods, etc., I DO NOT CAREóJust Make MY MOUTH WATER! You can also cut out pictures of foods from the magazines to glue onto your menu.

REMEMBER! BE CREATIVE AND HAVE FUN!
