Fun with Fondue

Years ago I taught about fondues and this year in my Exploring Foods class, I decided to update an oldie but goodie and add it back into the mix! In this Fun with Fondue lesson and lab, students learn about the history and customs associated with fondues before actually preparing them in the lab. In addition to making fondue, we combined a charcuterie brunch board along with it for a fun, hands-on lab!

Ugly Sweater Scavenger Hunt Fashion Show

Ugly sweaters are all the craze, so why not incorporate them into a fun winter holiday activity? This Ugly Sweater Scavenger Hunt Fashion Show is an adaptation of an assignment the art teacher at my school does. Send students on a scavenger hunt for ugly sweaters based on project criteria, have them create a digital fashion show (movie) set to fun holiday music and watch them in class right before winter break!

Charcuterie Board Virtual Challenge

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?”
