Fish Unit

Doing a unit on fish and seafood can be expensive so most programs leave it out. I had the privileged of working at a high school with a fish market adjacent to the school. We took a walking field trip to the fish market for a demonstration of how to select and cook fish. This was an awesome opportunity for students and helped mitigate the costs to the culinary department. With a little creative thinking, you maybe able to incorporate a seafood unit into your culinary program.

Project Brainstorm: Help us Help You! This Month’s Subject: Child Abuse

We are going to pose a topic and ask you to “help us help you” by just sharing one thing you did whether it be an activity, a video clip, infographic, reading, etc. when teaching that topic. We believe everyone will win in the end as you’ll have a new lesson or at least a lot of new ideas and resources to pull from.

Consumer Promotions Lesson

If you’re like me you’ve been at the cash register ready to check out when the clerk tells you about some new rewards card or store credit card offer that may sound appealing. To make matters worse you may have rewards credit cards that beg you to use them to earn points towards your next airfare, or cash back. You may have thrown up your hands and declared I’ll take no special offers or you may be one to take most special offers. How do you navigate in the world full of offers for EVERYTHING? Which deal is the best? This lesson gives students an opportunity to look at specific scenarios with REAL companies’ offers and do the math.

Technology & Toddlers Activity

It’s hard to escape the children’s toy lesson without addressing the prevalence of Apps for Smart phones and tablets as the new toys for toddlers. Give it just a couple of years and this lesson will be obsolete as the students you’ll be teaching grew up playing more with Apps than physical toys and they will have no idea why that may be a problem. Regardless of your bias, we need to teach tomorrow’s child care workers & parents how to evaluate Apps that are good for children from the ones that are fluff.

Fruit Lab

One of my favorite things to do with students are taste tests. They absolutely love it if they are brave enough to give it a try. So many students never get the chance to try different fruits unless their parents expose them to them. Bring on this lesson that will be sure to be some students’ favorite.

Feeding Young Children–Picky Eaters Lesson

In this lesson students will determine if they were or still are picky eaters. They will view a you tube video of the Arthur cartoon entitled “DW The Picky Eater” and fill out a graphic organizer while viewing. Following the video students discuss the information from the graphic organizer and brainstorm with a partner some fun, creative ways to get a picky eater to eat. These ideas may be based on personal experiences. Students will share their quick ideas with the group and then individually, students will investigate further by completing the mini poster computer project entitled “DW’s Top Ten Suggestions for Feeding the Picky Eater” which will be shared orally with the class when finished.

Recipes Around The World

This lesson plan is a great way to have the students connect and relate to one another. Each student will find and bring in a favorite family recipe, or favorite recipe. The students will fill out a worksheet with questions and present them to the class. It incorporates culture, family, history, geography, self-esteem, and food.

This is lesson allows students to prepare a delicious southwestern tasting veggie burger that is quick and easy to make.
