Not sure how to go from the traditional food tests worksheet to something more student centered? Look no further because The Delishamix Dilemma might be exactly what you need.
This project is complete with various student support document that will help students to collaboratively and independently carry out a Biochemistry based project where they apply their knowledge of biochemical molecules and food tests to hypothesize, strategize their solutions, collect and analyze their data.
There is a document to which students refer as they provide and receive peer feedback. This is the feedback that they will use to make their written report stronger. The project also includes a rubric that can be used to assess their work. Also included is a worksheet that students can use to record their observations when they learn how to carry out the basic food tests. They should be encouraged to hold on to this worksheet since it will be a reference when they carry out the Delishamix Dilemma project.
The only work that you will need to do is to create the Delishamix sample. You can decide which biochemical molecules you wish to include.
