After participating in two “Creating Digital Interactive Notebook” webinar sessions with Lindsey Harlan, I felt brave enough to attempt my first digital interactive notebook! The DINB: Cheese Unit covers a variety of information around cheese and also includes a couple of tasty labs (according to my students)! If you have the opportunity to participate in any of Lindsey’s sessions, I highly recommend it!
If you teach about food trucks and are also into digital interactive notebooks, then this “Fair Food Truck DINB Project” from Lindsey Harlan is just for you! Lindsey, a FACS teacher from Arkansas, created this as a final project for her Food Safety & Nutrition class. Want more inspiration? Check out Lindsey’s Facebook group: “FCS Digital Notebooks”.
During this time of synchronous and asynchronous learning, students enrolled in Sasha Roble’s F&N program must be provided with alternative non-cooking assignments. During this unit of study, students learn how to rehab or alter recipes using The Mayo Clinic’s Five Recipe Make-Over Tips. Students then apply those five tips to a March Madness Menu Planning with Recipe Rehab Assignment.
Who doesn’t indulge in comfort foods from time to time? During the pandemic, comfort foods have been a “go to” for many people, me included! In this “Comfort Food Lesson & Lab,” students explore what comfort foods are and why we crave them. Additionally, they share their own “go to” comfort foods before preparing a common comfort food in the lab.
Engaging students while being digital only can be tricky! One activity that my students enjoyed was the “5 Clue Challenge”. It is super easy to implement and it does engage students in a variety of ways. The beauty of it, as always, is that it can be used in both the traditional and remote classroom settings!
Charcuterie boards seem to be all the rage, trending as a creative way to display everything from appetizers to desserts! With the Super Bowl and Valentine’s Day rapidly approaching, I thought it would be a great time to introduce this concept and the Charcuterie Board Virtual Challenge to my students. Because of teaching in a hybrid setting, I made this a virtual activity and can’t wait to see what my students create! So, I will leave you with the same question I will my students, “What’s on your board?”
Happy New Year! I was in the middle of my Pasta Unit and planned to move into meats and proteins afterwards, but then we went remote. Needless to say, my plans went by the wayside…so to speak. Since the plan was to begin with beef, I decided to forge ahead and create this E-Learning Ground Beef Web Activity for my students to complete virtually. As many of the lessons found on this website, this activity could easily be used in the regular classroom–the only thing missing are the labs!
A huge “thank you” goes out to Barbara Scully for sharing this IMPRESSIVE Foodborne Illnesses: Digital Interactive Notebook! The resource is chock-full of information, resources, and activities for asynchronous teaching. Regardless of how you are teaching this year, this Foodborne Illness: Digital Notebook is a great way to have students investigate and apply what they know!
