A study of the Mayans and Mexico promises to be colourful and rich so don’t overlook the delicious cuisine of Mexico.
In this lesson, by combining the food of Mexico with the skills of website building and the key features of persuasive writing, pupils have the chance to become restaurateurs as they imagine, launch and run their very own school restaurant.
This project sits perfectly at the end of a study of the ancient Maya or Mexico but its principles could apply to the cuisine of many studies.
