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.

'PRINT AND GO' FOOD cover lessons KS3/4

18 Resources
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!

Waste not want not. FOOD WASTE
gmilesy

Waste not want not. FOOD WASTE

(0)
This is a lesson which is best suited to KS3. It begins with a quiz to check prior knowledge and to promote interest and discussion. There are then a series of clips and activities (differentiated options) for student to complete as well as a homework activity on monitoring their family food waste. The lesson will probably take 30 - 45 mins and so is best suited to a lesson where you have a demo to do perhaps? Feedback welcome!

EXAM SEASON - A healthy body is a healthy mind

(0)
This resource could be used during tutor time/lesson time/as an assembly or pieces of it could be used to illustrate how to look after yourself during exam season. There are several video clips which are both thought provoking and interesting and dispel myths about drinking caffeine, energy drinks and the importance of drinking enough water. The resource also covers sleep, breakfast food and the effect of exercise. There is no script as such with this resource and so can be used as you wish.
FOOD SCIENCE - Raising agents investigation - Carbon Dioxide

FOOD SCIENCE - Raising agents investigation - Carbon Dioxide

(0)
I have used this with Year 9 students (1 hour lesson) and it has proved a gentle introduction to exploring food science and to writing up a science experiment. The PPT leads you through the investigation and there is an animated clip linked which shows the students the theory behind a cake being made. Helps support their understanding of the processes occurring. Uses minimal equipment and is suitable for teacher led or student led approach (I did it as a class demonstration). Practical lesson follow up opportunities where pupils research food products which rise using carbon dioxide as a raising agent.
YEAR 8 FOOD SCHEME OF WORK - World Food
gmilesy

YEAR 8 FOOD SCHEME OF WORK - World Food

(0)
This is a scheme of work I developed because our class sizes had increased to a size where it was not possible for all students to cook at once. So, students cook on alternate weeks and each 3rd week there is a theory based activity which can be taught to supplement their practical work. It is based on an 18 lesson rotation with 1 hour lessons. I have also attached some of the PPTs which you will need to deliver the scheme. I have also included my sous chef observation/peer assessment sheet which they have enjoyed completing when it is not their turn to cook. Feedback welcome!

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.
