Students will explore and identify how the process and preservation of food has changed over time and will see how raw materials can be processed into fudge. Throughout the unit students will be divided into four different teams and each team will become a different company. Each company will experiment with how material can be formed to keep a desired shape, how food can be packaged to keep it fresh, and the importance of cleanliness in a food production environment. As a culminating activity, each team will mass-produce and package their fudge for a fudge festival.
All units contain teacher background information, handouts, transparency masters, and a student packet.
Each unit is designed to integrate mathematics and science with technology and take 8 to 10 days.
