FOOD SUSTAINABILITY - A problem for the future?

FOOD SUSTAINABILITY - A problem for the future?

I have bundled a range of lessons covering hot topics of sustainability in food production. Bring this challenging subject to life with well planned lessons complete with many hyperlinks to video clips which place into context the issues covered. Lots of extension tasks and opportunities for literacy development and many with homework activities included. The fish sustainability lesson involves an interactive game using popcorn and drinking straws where each student gets to become a fishermen for the lesson and learn first hand about the effects of overfishing - Exciting! I have also included a set of 5 stand alone cover lessons which can be easily administered in an emergency - just photocopy and go! Suitable for delivery by cover supervisors - all contain video link stimulus for each lesson. Topics cover fair trade, organic food, food miles, ethical chicken farming. All are print A4 in size. Feedback welcome.

KS3 FOOD PREP curriculum management package

KS3 FOOD PREP curriculum management package

This is my interpretation of the 1 - 9 assessment levels which in my school we are using at to help guide them through the process. I have based the assessment outcomes on the exam board that I am using at GCSE level… (KS3 and KS4 version included. One leads directly on from the other) I have included the student self assessment trackers for Y7,8 and 9. The students stick these trackers into the front of their books and they complete the self assessment after each practical (usually as a starter in the next theory lesson. I have added a food science focus which challenges students think about and to record how food science has played its part in their dish. This sets them up nicely for GCSE food prep. Also contains a clear framework for you to record your feedback and add a literacy focus for the student. Helps you to provide evidence of your feedback. Also included are the 3 recipe books which go with these trackers and also the curriculum guide which goes with these three year groups (based on students having 1 lesson per week, for 1 hour for the whole year. Students cook in two half groups so they have 1 theory lesson and then 2 practicals. 1 student cooks, the other helps and then they swap). PLEASE NOTE: THIS DOES NOT INCLUDE THE RESOURCES WHICH GO WITH THE CURRICULUM MAPS.

'PRINT AND GO' FOOD cover lessons KS3/4

'PRINT AND GO' FOOD cover lessons KS3/4

I have created a range of resources which are easy to use, particularly for non-specialists and cover supervisors with minimal expertise. Topics covered are all linked to the new GCSE food prep course and there are many which cover issues of sustainability. All the resources are ‘print and go’ (with the exception of the nutrition bundle which are more suited to homework tasks) and so in an emergency they are really easy to use. All the KS3 resources contain links to video clips to set the context of the lesson and bring it to life. There are also differentiated tasks. You will require an internet connection to get the full benefit of each resource. For the Provenance - Cereals worksheet you will need to print the map of asia as an extra resource Feedback welcome!

FOOD MILES and provenance

FOOD MILES and provenance

I use these resources with Year 8 and they make up two lessons where I demonstrate a practical so will occupy students for up to 30 mins. There is a video clip at the beginning of the food miles ppt and there is a homework activity on both ppts, one which lends itself to literacy marking. The food provenance lesson involves literacy activity starter and then a useful resource on traditional British dishes which leads to a homework task described on the PPT. I have also included my 'non-doers' peer assessment sheet which the students really seem to enjoy doing.
