Pilot Testing: Each lesson was tested internally and at a New Brunswick school by the program coordinator. Feedback was received by teachers and lessons were revised and field tested again, if necessary. Lessons were also tested by a student prior to release.
Use Restrictions: May copy for educational purposes.
Reviewers Comments: This curriculum provides many interactive activities to keep students attention. Lessons are organized and provide a ‘background’ section and references. Lessons include a couple activities and a tasting/recipe. Lessons may require educators to purchase or order outside materials. Some nutritional analysis is provided for the recipes, some are not. Lessons are best suited for a younger audience.
