States of Dairy

This is a unit with six inquiry teaching sequences about investigating how dairy foods respond to changes in temperature. This learning sequence encourages students to predict the effect of heating and cooling on different dairy foods. Students investigate how melting, freezing, heating and cooling can affect the shape of different dairy foods.

Students plan an investigation to illustrate what they know about how dairy foods can change shape, to illustrate some cool chemistry. They then plan and conduct their investigation about how different dairy foods can change shape to create an episode of a ‘Discover Dairy Science Show’ to demonstrate their understandings.
