Students will view the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3kSwi0OWSaE entitled, "Living with Severe Food Allergies: Our Special Life".
Students will brainstorm the various environments in which a child might be in peril based on the food that is offered or available.
In pairs, students will pick one of the 8 most common food allergies and will research the manifestation of coming into contact with that food.
4 Designing Solutions/Communicating Information
Based on what they've learned about a specific food allergen, students will design a safety protocol for one of the environments in which a child might encounter the allergen. Students will then
1) Design training modules that would be given to anyone who worked in that environment.
2) Create a visual to be posted in that environment
3) Create a brochure that educates others about the dangers and safeguards for that allergen within that environment.
