This lesson is designed for upper KS2.
Giving pupils a chance to learn about which foods can be frozen; also to understand the importance of blanching vegetables before being frozen.
This practical lesson involves recording and making systematic observations on the state of frozen foods that are defrosting.
Having a selection of raw prepared fruit and vegetables with high water content, pupils will have a tasting session and answer questions if all fruit and vegetables can be frozen; which foods can be blanched. This science lesson would have to be taught in the morning as observations will need to be made throughout the day. Pupils will write their conclusions and evaluations on which foods and be frozen.
