Overview:
Students work in teams to learn about fast food restaurants. Each team researches information about any four fast-food restaurant chains. Next, each team analyzes one restaurant chain in depth. Assuming the roles of Marketing Director, Nutritionist, Entrepreneur and Customer, team members then complete specific activities related to their positions. For example, the Marketing Director develops a brochure promoting the restaurant and writes a business letter describing ways to improve the business, while the Nutritionist creates spreadsheet tables and charts highlighting the nutritional values of the restaurants foods. Teams use their work to create PowerPoint presentations summarizing their results.
