Cocinero de Hierro (Iron Chef) Virtual Food Challenge
Spice up your food unit with this fun group of activities in which students take part in a virtual iron chef style competition. They begin by choosing 3 ingredient playing cards, then they search a Spanish language recipe site for dishes containing those 3 ingredients. Next, they put together a grocery list, breaking down the items they still need by food group to demonstrate comprehension. They answer questions from the judges about the preparation of the dish as they "cook". Finally, they present their dishes to the judges with a drawing/picture and Spanish description of the meal they have prepared.

This Product Includes:
- Guide for Educators
- 40 Ingredient Playing Cards (Print multiple sets for larger classes)
- Instructions for finding recipes containing ingredients on the chosen website
- Food Group Ingredient Sorting Activity
- Judge Q & A Activity
- Dish Presentation Drawing & Writing Activity

This is sure to be a hit with your students! The activity is flexible enough to be done individually, with partners, or in a small group!
