Author(s): Nancy Moreno, PhD, and Barbara Tharp, MS.

Safe Food Preparation

This activity’s objectives are aligned with the National Science Education Standards, specifically those related to Science as Inquiry and Physical Science. In this activity, students will learn about—and practice—safe food preparation by making fruit ice cream in class. They will learn the importance of using clean utensils, washing work surfaces, and washing their hands before beginning any food preparation. Students will measure, plan a step-by-step procedure, and make observations. 

Concepts

  • Simple steps can be taken during food preparation to reduce the risk of food contamination.
  • Snacks can be nutritious and fun!

Student Worksheets

Student pages in the teacher’s guide are provided in English and in Spanish.
