Food Bacteria (Key Stage Four)
From the Chilled Food Association, this resource helps students to think about contamination of food and how the risk of contamination can be reduced. The materials are aimed at STEM ambassadors or company personnel running a session in a secondary school. However, they can be adapted for use by teachers in the classroom.
The materials consist of a lesson plan, stimulus materials and suggested activities. They will help students to:
• understand how bacteria grows
• understand why it is important to reduce the number of bacteria on food
• understand how to store food in a fridge to reduce the risk of bacteria
HEALTH and SAFETY
Any use of a resource that includes a practical activity must include a risk assessment. Please note that collections may contain ARCHIVE resources, which were developed at a much earlier date. Since that time there have been significant changes in the rules and guidance affecting laboratory practical work. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
