Use visual cues and explicit examples to help students understand the drivers behind food product development.
This resource was developed to be used as a series of visual cues intended to be displayed inside the food technology classroom.
The poster pack is recommended to be used alongside the Part 4 – Reasons For and Types of Food Product Development resource as the information in the posters is taught in depth in the part 4 resource if you are using this with stage 6.
This resource also includes a collaborative activity where students match current real world examples to the driver posters and complete a two part worksheet.
N.B. – The product cards can meet a variety of drivers and it is up to the teacher’s discretion to discuss this with students. A potential answers sheet is provided for the activity however these products are not limited to just the answers provided. It is an opportunity for students to justify their choices regarding the reason for each product’s development.
