Food and Grocery + Vocabulary for Cooking and Baking
Goals of the Class
Identify food in a recipe and know how to cook/bake it
Who enjoys cooking? Who does it regularly? Has it changed with the pandemic? What’s your favorite food?
Quick food quiz about fruit & vegetables I showed them typical German fruits and vegetables (pictures) and they had to guess the name and translation. I showed just pictures and they had to guess the name of the fruit or the vegetable. What ingredients are used for this dish?
Everyone was given 3 vocabulary words (verbs for cooking) and had to explain them without using the word. Think of a dish that consists of the ingredients mentioned and then present it to the others. Not all ingredients have to be included and other ingredients can be used.
How to use the ingredients to cook? potatoes, beans, mushrooms, tomatoes, peppers, cucumber, carrots Apple, peach, strawberry, kiwi, banana What are the ingredients of your favorite foodShow us a picture
What worked well in this class? What did not work (and how could it be improved)?
Especially the explanation of the cooking vocabulary worked very well, and the students were able to memorize the vocabulary and use it later. Also, the presentation of the favorite dish with ingredients and cooking instructions was well received. The fruit and vegetable quiz were a bit too easy, here one could choose more difficult products.
