Stay organised and be prepared for your Food Technology casual/cover class with this 2 lesson kit! 

This kit can be used to cover two casual lessons. Alternatively, this kit can be divided and used however you like for fun and engaging activities for your students.

Pack includes:

  • Innovative Ideas and Creative Solutions PowerPoint
  • Student evaluation scaffold
  • 12 Delectable Design scenario cards
  • Delectable Designs sketch and annotate worksheet
  • Two-page Delectable Designs product details worksheet
  • Two-page Research Time worksheet


If you choose to use this kit to cover two casual lessons it could look something like this:

Lesson 1:

  • Students view the Innovative Ideas and Creative Solutions PowerPoint including 3 emerging food technology videos. Students choose one of the innovative and creative solutions and complete the evaluation scaffold.
  • In pairs, students then receive one of the Delectable Design scenarios. Students are to use the ingredient, constraints and need/opportunity to design a new food/beverage product for the specific need/opportunity e.g.

Ingredient: Spinach.

Constraints: Must be tasty for adolescents.

Need/Opportunity: A snack for a school canteen.

An example of designed food product for this particular scenario could be spinach and fetta triangles. Students then need to find a suitable recipe and modify it for one as per the constraint.

  • Using the Delectable Designs sketch and annotate worksheet, students complete an annotated sketch of their design and an annotated sketch of what their packaging could look like.


Lesson 2:

  • Continuing on from the previous lesson students complete the product details worksheet based on their idea from Delectable Designs.
  • Students complete the Research Time worksheet where they investigate any new innovative food, beverage, product, equipment or packaging.
