WARM-UP & PICTURES
The lesson starts with an activity in which students look at different examples of food habits and discuss if they are true for them. They can also share some other examples that are not mentioned in the exercise. Then, students look at the pictures of four food experiences (blind tasting, eating in an underwater restaurant, campfire and cooking classes) and decide which of them they find the most interesting. Students also think about other memorable, terrible or surprising food and restaurant experiences and share the details with others.
VIDEO & DISCUSSION
In this part of the lesson students watch the video about tipping and discuss it. Before they watch it, they think about three words that come to their mind when they hear the word ‘tipping’. Then, students watch the video which raises a question whether tipping is always necessary. After the video students have a comprehensive discussion. They talk about what they’ve seen in the video, their experience with tipping, other professions that should be tipped, tipping in different cultures and much more. Finally, they look at other recent changes and discuss food and restaurant trends.
MORE OPPORTUNITIES TO DISCUSS FOOD AND RESTAURANTS
Here students discover and talk about other food and restaurant trends. They look at some ideas (e.g. adult-only restaurants, ghost kitchens, robots serving food, hyperlocal and sustainable restaurants that grow their own food, etc.) and share their opinions about them. As a wrap-up activity, students read the descriptions of three businesses (lab-grown meat, a special grocery shopping app, DIY meal kits) and decide if they’d invest in any of them. They also have to explain their decision.
