Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution Day

See on Scoop.itFood Technologies: Preparation & Safety

A full lesson plan and equipment list for Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution Day.

Ornella Whelan‘s insight:

Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution Day was a global initiative to promote healthy eating and get children involved in preparing healthy foods.  The quality resources developed by The Jamie Oliver Food Foundation could be utilised in a unit of work relating to healthy food preparation.  Having been specially designed to educate students about food hygiene, safety and nutrition, the resources contain step-by-step instructions on how to prepare a rainbow wrap.

 

The resources align with the ACTDEK022 content description.  In particular, the elaboration suggesting that students describe and use safety guidelines for food storage and preparation at home and school (ACARA, 2014).

 

This hands-on lesson would be ideal as an assessment or end of unit activity.

Food Hygiene Certificate Safety Temperature

Ornella Whelan‘s insight:

This resource is a good visual representation of the safe temperatures for food storage and preparation.  This resource could be used to introduce the concept of safety procedures in food handling.  Moreover, the resource would be a helpful quick reference during the reinforcement stage of student learning.  The resource is supportive of the Australian Curriculum Year 5 and 6 Content Description stating that students apply safe procedures when using a variety of materials, components, tools, equipment and techniques to make design solutions (ACARA, 2014).

How to Know When to Throw Your Groceries Out | 21 Incredibly Important Diagrams To Help You Get Through Life

Ornella Whelan‘s insight:

In alignment with the Design and Technologies processes and production skills strand content descriptor, asserting that students apply safe procedures when using a variety of materials, components, tools, equipment and techniques to make design solutions, this resource visually depicts the recommended storage times for common food items (ACARA, 2014). This resource could be used to introduce the safe times for foods stored in the refrigerator and freezer, or used as a reference for students during the reinforcement stage of the learning process.

HEALTH + SAFETY: Take Care in the Kitchen

See on Scoop.itFood Technologies: Preparation & Safety

This collection of health & safety resources focuses on the development of student knowledge and understanding about food safety practices.

Ornella Whelan‘s insight:

The Year 5 & 6 Band Description of the Design & Technologies strand of the Australian Curriculum: Technologies stipulates that students be identifying, planning and maintaining safety standards and practices when making design solutions (ACARA, 2014). This collection of resources developed by Jamie Oliver (2010) develops student knowledge and understanding of food safety. Together the three resources introduce the current practices for food safety and explain some of the reasoning behind these practices.  The statistical data in these resources is relevant to UK learners, however, annotations have been added to the resources to adapt the content for Australian students.

Food and Nutrition Information Websites for Teachers

See on Scoop.itFood Technologies: Preparation & Safety

Ornella Whelan‘s insight:

This resource has been developed by Nutrition Australia to provide teachers with credible and current information about nutrition and food safety. The resource includes links to lesson plans and resources (factsheets, posters, worksheets).

 

Many of the links would be useful to address the Australian Curriculum: Technologies content description ACTDEK022 (investigating the role of food preparation in maintaining good health and the importance of food safety and hygiene (ACARA, 2014).

Tools for Creative Writing Tasks

It is always challenging to find stimulus for creative writing tasks.  Here is a list of tools that I found on the Free Technology for Teachers website to help students develop creative writing ideas –

StoryToolz is a collection of useful tools for hesitant writers. There are three tools that students can use to get story ideas: Random Conflicts, Half Title Generator, and Story Idea Generator.

Scholastic Story Starters is a tool for students to create short, creative fiction stories. There are four story themes for students to chose from: fantasy, adventure, sci-fi, and scrambler. When students are finished their story can be printed. Story Starters will work on your PCs and iPads.

Things to Think About is an app that offers 100 writing prompts created by students for students. There are 12 different categories for students to choose from. Each prompt has a picture (drawn by a student) and a short audio recording of a student reading the prompt.

This would be a great starter for students with low literacy capabilities.

Quotes Daddy is a compilation of quotes from famous and not-so-famous people. Each day new quotes are featured on the homepage of Quotes Daddy. If your class has their own blog you can add a Quotes Daddy widget to your blog.

One Word is a writing prompt generator. Students are given one word; they then have 60 seconds to write in the text box whatever comes to their minds regarding that word. The idea is to write sentences relating to the word.

I hope you have found this useful

Yours in ICT
