Food Tech - Murder Mystery (Food Poisoning)
This is a lesson I have created to teach the topic of Food Poisoning/bacteria etc. The lesson is turned into a murder mystery (based on a true story) and students have to research different types of bacteria, solve clues and figure out who the murderer was!

Attached is an assessment sheet I have also developed which helps checks progress (as I'm currently a trainnee I'm really pushing to track and evidence the progress of my students).

To jazz this lesson up even more, I play spooky murder mystery music as the students walk in the room and complete the first task. I also have the BBC News theme music playing before reading out the News Flash document.
