A memorable and exciting activity for students to develop their understanding of food technology content.
This resource is a great way to revise the digestion process after it has been explicitly taught to students, so they are familiar with the content.
Students play through the game, answering the questions on the game board as they go. Students record their answers to check at the end of the game. If the students land on a question that they cannot answer, they must research the question and provide the answer to all students playing on their board.
