FACS 6th Grade
2 class periods of 45 minutes each
To be a successful cook you must have the correct measurement procedures learned.
Worksheets found under attachments, supplies for the lab of choice listed below.
Have the students make one of the two labs to practice measuring techniques (oatmeal munchies, and muddy buddies)
Due to the nature of this being the first food lab experience in the CTE Core program, it might be good to take some time to go over the following items as necessary. Explain:
These two recipes were selected because of the amount of measuring involved and the short time required to complete the labs.
Cooking terminology and basic math.
Students will learn measuring equivalents, how to measure, and will produce a tasty product.
As the teacher you will need to set up a demonstration lab for measurements. This demonstration lab can be a fruit freeze or you may demonstrate the oatmeal munchies lab in order for students to understand that only through the correct measurements will their lab turn out correctly.
Observe students ability to measure correctly in labs and also in demonstration.
The teacher will evaluate the finished product that students cook in the lab.
