Minerals reading is for the high achievers to allow them to have some extra reading - always good to put on google classroom (or similar) as optional extension work.
This lesson includes the demonstration of macaroni cheese
Lesson Two: Minerals practical - macaroni cheese
There are two documents here. One is example questions - they are multiple slides so they can be printed 6 to a page and handed out and stuck in the books - I have got them to do this for homework.
The second document can be completed during the practical and is a recap on gelatinisation.
