What food was to blame?
- Includes 1 activity
- Perfect for high school students
The annual Teacher's Appreciation Luncheon has become a cautionary tale after one teacher died and four teachers came down with suspected food poisoning. Students explore the chemical properties and structural formulas of reducing sugars, starch, protein, and fat, build a series of molecular models, and analyze the results of chemical tests to determine which food at the luncheon was poisoned.
