KS 2 Science Cooking from frozen

This lesson is for designed for upper KS2

Giving pupils a chance to understand how food freezes to preserve it from decay.
Also understand why certain food products can be cooked from frozen and others have to defrost. With opportunities to Investigate and taste test which foods taste better fresh or frozen?

As the lesson is a practical session the practical preparation would need to be taught first, and the results gathered the following day, as freezing the food products the day before, ahead of cooking and tasting the frozen foods as well as the same freshly prepared food on that day. The attached numeracy lesson is linked as it reinforces why it is important to follow recipe instructions and methods before cooking, as well as measuring out ingredients correctly.

A fun and stimulating lesson.
