Part of Lesson Plan: 3. Getting Started - Kitchen Tools & Equipment
Activity Overview / Details
Hand out Culinary Tools & Equipment Worksheet.
NOTE: The worksheet has 50 spaces and the PowerPoint only has 45 items. You can use the extra five spaces to choose other tools and equipment that you prefer to include, or have the student use their textbook to come up with five more culinary tools or equipment.
Show the PowerPoint for Culinary Tools & Equipment. The PowerPoint has 139 slides. The first 49 contain just the pictures that are numbered for the students to view and write their guesses.. The rest of the slides contain the numbered pictures (45) and another slide after each picture with a brief description of their function in food preparation. the second set of slides are for you to review with the students.
Have students write their guesses on their worksheet.
Then show the answers and review with students.
Have the students write in the correct name with the correct spelling and a brief description of each items use in food preparation.
You can choose if you use real items or the PowerPoint or both.
You can choose how many items you want to show. You could do 5+ items per day or whatever works best for your class.
You can use the worksheet, or have the students use a piece of binder paper with numbers 1 - 25 on the front, and 26 - 50 on the back. Have them fold it into three section lenghwise, or make three columms by drawing lines.
You could also print out the PowerPoint slides. Then cut them up and use them by showing or places the pictures of the items around the room. Then next put out the cards with the brief description next to the pictures for the students to view and write the information on their worksheet.
I have found that the students like to work in pairs or teams when guessing the items. I have also found that it works best for the students to learn the name and function at the same time.
Some of the culinary tools and equipment I save and introduce later when teaching specfic sections such as pastry tools, pasta, breads etc.
