Instructional Procedures

Hand out assignment: Scrambled Egg Worksheet. Read the directions and explain to the students the assignment. On the front page, find the 30 words hidden as identified on the back side. Then write a complete sentence as it relates to eggs so the teacher knows the students understands the meaning of the word. Identify when it is due. The students can work on the assignment during class if they have time.

Lab: Have the necessary ingredients out for the students to prepare the lab. Review the recipes one more time prior to preparing.

Remember, each student will make their own egg in a bacon ring. Pour the bacon grease in the empty can to discard in garbage so it doesn't clog up the drains.

The coffee cake and eggs bake at two different temperatures so share ovens with two groups.

All three foods need to be done and completed at the same time. Prepare the food, clean-up, set the table, teacher can put marshmallow in beverage cup when table is set appropriately, eat and completely clean-up before the bell rings. Fill out and turn in Lab Sheet for credit.
