Under normal teaching conditions, I teach my mini-unit on vegetarianism in a completely different way! Having to teach remotely, however, forced me to develop the KWL Vegetarianism E-Learning activity in order to cover the material. Students learn about various types of vegetarians, explore reasons people choose to become vegetarian along with the pros and cons and then students must take a stance. So, if you teach this topic, check out the KWL Vegetarianism E-Learning activity!
THANK YOU to Nikki Heflin for sharing her Grain Bowl E-Learning Assignment! This is a wonderful collection of notes, assignments and lab options! I can’t express how happy it makes my heart that so many of you are willing to share your ideas so that we may all get through this distance learning together and successfully! As I always say, “Let’s be Great Together”! If you are collecting flex lessons, I hope you add this Grain Bowl E-Learning assignment to it!
Since no one is quite sure what the next school year will look like, I’ve been working on updating some of my lessons for remote learning…just in case! This Kitchen Tools E-Learning Assignment comes to you early as I had a teacher request for some engaging ways to teach kitchen tools remotely. Not only can this Kitchen Tools E-Learning assignment be used in remote learning, but could also be used in the regular classroom.
Another THANK YOU goes out to Holly Kelley for sharing this Pies Hyperdoc for E-Learning! In this lesson, students explore the history of pies, learn more about pies via an embedded PearDeck presentation, Ed-Puzzle videos before applying their knowledge and pie making skills at home. If you were planning on a pie unit for this spring, this Pies Hyperdoc might be the perfect solution!
With more time on my hands due to COVID-19, I find myself in the kitchen more frequently, experimenting with new recipes. Inspired by something a friend sent me, I decided to give gardenscape bread art a try. Whoever said bread has to be boring never tried this form of art! If you like your students to be creative and engaged, I’ve got just the lesson, activity and recipe for you! I am assigning this to my students as an enrichment E-Learning activity, but when I’m back in the classroom, you can bet gardenscape bread art will be part of my foods class as a creative lab!
Sending out a big THANK YOU to Barbara Scully for sharing her Knife Skills Workbook for E-Learning! Her adapted knife skills workbook for E-learning covers almost everything you want or need to know about knife skills from handling the knife safely to various knife cuts! So sit back and take a look…you’ll be here for a bit so grab a cup of coffee and enjoy!
Inspired by Leslie Williams Grantham’s Ramen Noodle Challenge (THANK YOU), I created several more Cooking Challenges for my students to experiment with at home for an E-Learning assignment. Additional cooking challenges all follow the same format as Leslie’s, but use different foods. Check out the challenges below…I can’t wait to see what my students create!
The Microwave Cooking E-Learning assignment is an assignment I updated for my students so they could complete it ditally, in Google Classroom. This Microwave Cooking E-Learning assignment takes students through a variety of concepts related to microwave cooking such how the appliance works, the benefits of cooking this way, safety, standing time and demonstrations of microwave mug friendly recipes.
Another E-Learning assignment coming your way that features the safe recipe style guide! Recently, I participated in a webinar on this topic and had been wanting to incorporate it into my foods classes when teaching about or reinforcing food safety practices. The safe recipe style guide assignment can be used as a normal assignment even when classes aren’t virtual. So, check it out and see if you can add it to your remote learning lesson file!
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, many of us find ourselves having to provide activities or lessons to our students that can be shared through remote learning. The following “Handwashing Activities for Distance Learning” may offer you some ideas that you can share with your students for enrichment or new learning. Either way, they are practical life skills and habits to learn and practice during these difficult times.
