Lamination Alternative for FCS Teachers

April 12, 2012 No Comments

My students observed how cooking changes food and tomorrow’s Chicken and Broccoli lab is a tasty way to do it.

I would like to remind everyone that laminating is permanent. Sometimes people think that laminating a document so it can be used over and over again is eco-friendly. I disagree. Laminated documents cannot be recycled.

Here is my new favorite system:

I placed a copy of the recipe in a plastic sleeve. I modified the recipe based on the needs of my students this term.

Now when I go to the grocery store I use a wet erase marker to check off my items. At the end of this term I will wipe the page so it is ready to use for next term. I use these plastic sleeves a lot in my classroom. I change recipes often to keep my curriculum fresh. I don’t have the long-term commitment of laminating!


If you are interested, here is the link to the stir-fry we are making.
