Instant Lessons - Food Technology titles has been written to assist Years 7-10 Technology and Food Technology teachers to develop lessons about about food for special needs and occasions. Each unit of work is an ideal supplement for a regular lesson, suitable for homework or revision, and can be left for a class when a regular teacher is absent.
Activity types are varied and include cloze tasks, completing tables, interpreting data, responding to an article, true-or-false activities, developing debate points, a find-a-word activity, short answers and responding to design briefs. Teachers can use the design briefs as a group activity or for individual students to complete.
All the work sheets are included as a PDF on the attached CD-ROM, making them ideal resources for use on interactive whiteboards.
