Food science scheme of work and resources.

This project is based around a rotation of 12 1 hour lessons. Included is a SOW, power point presentation with slides for each lesson, recipes, cake method information sheets for one of the activities, recipes and an end of topic test with answers. The project covers the following food science related words: Gluten, gelatinisation, coagulation, aeration and caramelisation. Each recipe demonstrated one of these key words. Homework is suggested on the SOW but is not for students to complete in their booklets. This avoids them losing them if they take them home! This SOW directly links to the new Food preparation and nutrition GCSE. I follow the AQA specification, however, this project could be used to support any of the exam board specs.
I teach this to my yr 8s, however, it could easily be adapted or added to for other year groups.
