Get the students to work in pairs on a same-different task. For this, you need two sets of numbered grids (set A and set E) with pictures of food items on them, some of which are the same across both sets and some different. There is an example on resource sheet 3.9.

In pairs, one student has set A and the other set E. The task is for the students to communicate with each other, box by box (starting from number 1), to determine which boxes are “he rite” (identical) and which are “he rerekē” (different).

You can use this task for recipes and menus, with similarities and differences across the two students’ versions.

Extension. To make this task more complex, have the same pictures of the items in set A and set E with different characteristics, for example, a green apple in set A and a red one in set E. Now the students have to describe the items as well as name them. You could use this more complex version of the task to consolidate adjectives associated with length, shape, and colour.
