In the kitchen... Yum, yum, yum!
It is essential that the students are able to subsequently apply everything they learn. There is no better way of doing this in terms of food than cooking something and then eating it. This enters into the well-known and well-used teaching method of "learning on the job".
Piece of work linked to the following stage areas:
Knowledge of the surrounding area, Consumer Education.
Description of the work to be undertaken:
How?: This file links fish to the kitchen and gives some tips on how to prepare and cook fish. At the end of the file, we suggest that the students look for a recipe including fish and we provide a model recipe.
Where?: In the classroom.
When?: After the visit.
Using what?: The relevant file. If the school has a kitchen area and the materials needed, we suggest that you spend an afternoon cooking some of the recipes that the students have collected. If the school has a dining room, there is no problem. If there is no dining room, you will need a camping stove and other common utensils. You also need to find a suitable place to do the cooking. The students' safety must be considered at all times, but this can also be educational for them.
Assessment: For the teacher to decide.
Complementary material : Cooking books can be used to find recipes. We suggest that, if possible, you choose a simple recipe to make at school, sharing out the tasks amongst all the students in the classroom. You could also invite a chef to help the students cook and to explain some aspects of cooking and fish.
To encourage the students to develop a positive attitude towards the kitchen and cooking, which historically have been relegated to second place in terms of social value for being a role essentially carried out by women.
To stimulate the students' interest in cooking and the activities carried out in the kitchen in order to generate interest in and awareness of healthy and attractive food.
