Processing of foods

To understand better what is processing of food, degrees of processing and why do we need to process foods.we were given an article to read in groups. Each group read and understood the matter and then presented the same in a form of a poster.


We watched videos to understand the different process of packaged foods.

To be able to experience some parts of the journey of food and the processes they go through to reach our tables we worked on a project - "market to table"

We started by thinking about one food item that we would like to make.    
Food item
Chocolate milkshake
Mango milkshake
Apple juice
lime juice
Ice lolly

Bringing in our instructional writing, we wrote the recipes for the food item.
Creating posters of the recipe.

We set out to the markets ourselves to buy the ingredients we would be needing.
This helped us understand change in  money better. We paid and exchanged the exact change that we would need to pay the exact bill.

One by one all of us made the recipes our friends wrote to make the food item. We measured, weighed, followed instructions.......all without knowing we were actually doing all of these things!!!


We discussed the processes each raw material went through before we could eat the food item.

This week we began working on our summative task.  Stay tuned to know what our task is....

In Math, we have been learning about different denominations in the Indian currency. 
We have been exploring how to make a certain amount using different combinations of notes and coins.

Next week we are working on setting up a tuck shop. We are working on making things to sell in the tuckshop. As a class we have brainstormed ways in which we can ear money to buy things from the tuck shop.
Coming up more on this next week.
