Editor: If you have access to a stove, a quick soup might be a good choice. Each student could have a different task: opening the cans of beans, pulling apart kale leaves, stirring the onions as they cook. If letting them chop vegetables isn't an option, you could pre-prepare the vegetables needing slicing. Pasta and a quick sauce (or even real mac n' cheese!) is another kid-friendly idea.
