This interactive activity helps students practice the skills needed to use a microwave to cook a variety of different kinds of food. Many special education students struggle to correctly use the microwave when warming food up at home, and are therefore reliant on others to help them with this process. If you are looking for an interactive lesson that has students simulate what it is like to do it on their own, this activity brings learning to life. Students read the prompts on the screen and then press the buttons on the microwave to enter the time needed to reheat something. Students get immediate feedback for each entry. A total of TWENTY microwave scenarios are included in this game. To play this game, internet access is required. Answers are not saved for future reference / grading.

❤️ How I Use This In My Classroom ❤️

This activity is very versatile and can be used as a whole group lesson, small group work, or independent practice as well. For a whole group lesson, present the game to the class and have students take turns pressing the keys for each item. You can have students enter responses for each slide individually or by doing a complete cooking scenario themselves. This can also easily be replicated in small groups as well, with more attention given to knowing what the different buttons means or additional review on formatting time correctly. Finally, when students have mastered the basic concepts of this activity, you can have them practice it on their own independently.
