A severe storm has caused your school to lose power. No lunch has been prepared. The only option for lunch today is a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, an apple, and a carton of milk. Classes will eat in their classroom because the cafeteria is dark. Therefore, each child’s lunch must be placed in a box. The principal has asked your class to prepare the lunches for the entire school. She needs the 500 lunches in one hour.

The boxes need to be assembled:

  • The apples need to be washed and dried
  • The sandwiches need to be made and wrapped in paper
  • A carton of milk must be put in each box
  • The lunches must be packed and counted on carts for delivery to each classroom

Demonstrate your understanding of specialization by writing a plan that describes what your class needs to do in order to have everyone’s lunch ready on time.
