Sharing a Fabric Marbling Project from Amy Harkey, a Missouri FACS teacher. Amy uses this interactive project in her Apparel, Fashions & Textiles class in her unit on Principles of Design as a way for students to demonstrate their understanding of the concepts. Read on to learn more about this cool project!
Some of you may remember the Late Show with Dave Letterman! One of his regular features included his infamous top 10 lists in descending order from 10 to 1, adding his own a touch of humor and sarcasm as he shared! I have been using written top 10 lists for years and was excited when Matt Miller of Ditch That Textbook shared his version utilizing Flipgrid. This Top 10 Lists…Video Style post shares how to present the lists via Flipgrid with some of ideas for topics. Help add to the list by sharing additional topics!
This is a great lab for students to apply food safety skills in the kitchen with or without living and teaching in the world of COVID-19! I have included a possible way to do this lab as an interactive class demonstration, especially if you have some lab restrictions. If times were normal, this recipe is still doable as a class demo or as individual group preparation (just adjust the recipe accordingly). I hope you find this Food Safety Lab: Baked Ground Beef Kabobs helpful in these unprecidented times!
In the last few months I’ve had several requests for babysitting lessons! It wasn’t that I didn’t have the lessons to share previously…they just needed to be freshened up! So after updating my lessons, the “Be a Great Sitter! Mini-Unit” is finally ready to share. I have always taught this “Be a Great Sitter! Mini Unit” to junior high students, but I see no reason why it couldn’t be used in a senior high class as well.
Who doesn’t love chocolate? For me, dark chocolate hits the spot! Every. Single. Time! If you are a chocoholic or just enjoy the taste, you may also enjoy the following resources for teaching about chocolate. Many can be used in this world of remote teaching, but can also be used in the traditional classroom!
After noticing continuous requests for lab suggestions that are doable in 43 minute class periods, I’ve decided to do a recurring series featuring recipes that can be completed from beginning to end in a 43 minute time frame. In addition, I will include my pre-lab review questions that pertain specifically to the recipe. This helps to ensure that students are reading the recipe. It also allows me time to show any videos that may demonstrate the product or specific techniques. So, without further ado, I present the first recipe in the 43 Minute Lab Series: Mini-Cheesy Garlic Bread!
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!
This lesson comes to you from Katelyn Propper….once again, THANK YOU for sharing and helping us all be great together! The Friendship lesson can be taught as an E-Learning assignment, but also would be a great addition to the traditional classroom if you teach about healthy interpersonal relationships. I know I intend to incorporate Katelyn’s Friendship lesson into my Individual & Family Studies class in the next school year!
