We couldn't do a food based project without getting out the mixing bowls! Last week, we had already tried a range of fruit and vegetables and this week we started combining ingredients and making creations. Everybody had the chance to make chocolate crispy cakes and to help to make a fruit and jelly flan. There was lots of discussion about healthy and unhealthy elements of our creations. Both recipes also gave us the chance to observe changes of state due to temperature e.g. melting or dissolving due to heat or solidifying due to cold.
After all that hard work it was only reasonable that we should do some taste testing. A big well done to all those children who have tried new foods over the last 2 weeks. Yum!
This afternoon we designed and made our smoothies. We tested shop bought smoothies and then designed our own from a range of fresh fruits and juices. We tried them out and they were DELICIOUS.
