Students in Grades 2 and 3 were very interested in learning about how Japanese restaurants sometimes have plastic food on display to show what’s on the menu. We created our own Japanese window menu by creating sushi for display.
We used electrical tape, cotton balls, fabric scraps, popsicle sticks and small sized paper plates. Each table group created 2 or 3 plates together using glue sticks. I pre-cut the tape as it can get pretty sticky.
Due to time constraints, I also pre-cut the fabric, but this wouldn’t be necessary in the classroom. I used a glue gun to ensure the ‘chopsticks’ wouldn’t fall off and to attach the plates to our red background. The font style is Matura Script.
