Game Design, Gamification, Learning Design and Assorted Other Strangeness

Crazy Recipes

This is one of my favorites.

Students are put into pairs or teams in which they brainstorm vocabulary for food, filling out the first page.

Students are then told that they are going to use those ingredients to make a menu for a new restaurant. They can use any ingredient more than once, but they must create 4 starters, 4 main courses, and 4 desserts.

For added fun, have the students make a name for their restaurant and tell other teams their menu.
