After reading about School Lunch Week on this list, I had my 7th and 8th
graders make a "food collage" using colored construction paper and
colored tissue paper. Some students even brought in their containers
from snacks...candy wrappers, potato chip bags, etc....but I didn't
really encourage this. Most of them created their food, plates, place
mats, etc. out of the paper provided. They turned out GREAT!!! And they
loved the lesson.

I displayed them all in the cafeteria and the woman in charge of our
cafeteria had some people come in and judge them. She gave small prizes
to the top three winners.

The winner, a 7th grader student, made a bowl of spaghetti and meat
balls. She cut many, many tiny strips of manila paper for the noodles
and the sauce and meatballs were made from the tissue. She did a paper
weaving of red and white for a place mat, cut out silver ware, made a
folded napkin, had "garlic toast", and a drink with a straw.

Some tore small pieces of different colors of green tissue paper for a
salad and added other ingredients. Most students made hamburgers with
all the layers of ingredients and french fries. The majority of these
were low relief.

Just wanted to share a "neat lesson" that my middle school students
really enjoyed.
