Pass out handouts for Table Manners and Introductions. Explain the assignments and allow the students some time to go through and answer the questions. Underline the correct answer to make the sentence correct on the Table Manners.

Then, identify foods you can eat with fingers, spoon, fork, uses for knives. Complete the questions on the Introductions from what they know.

Orally, go through and answer the questions together and explain or demonstrate if necessary to help the students understand the concept. There will be some questions as to why. I like to read out of some reference books on manners and etiquette to identify a point if necessary.
