It's almost the end of middle school! It's both fun and bittersweet to finish the year with the 8th grade. This is our 3rd year in Food Science together an I am looking forward to all the marking period has for us! We begin the MP by watching some sections of the 2008 Academy Award nominated ocumentary, Food Inc. Students will be challenged to define their personal food ethics- what is importnat to them in the production, distribution and prepartion of food?
Next we will discuss food safety- how to prepare and store food so that it is safe for consumption. We'll be making some different meals (finally, we'll be cooking meat!), building on all the skills we've learned in past years.
The marking period will end with baking cookies to be serve at graduation.
