39 activity task cards based on the Frida’s Fiesta Restaurant menu stimulus poster.

Welcome to Frida’s Fiesta, the world’s greatest Mexican-style restaurant.

• Mathematics

• History
• Visual Arts
• Inquiry
• Language
• Literacy
• Technology

Use these task cards for activity ideas for specific learning, or integrate them into your group learning rotations as additional activities. This resource is great for NAPLAN practise, as the task cards and stimulus poster coach students to concentrate on comprehension and using inference skills to solve problems and decode information.
