Reflection: Who Doesn't Love Bacon? - Section 1: Engage


Some students do not eat bacon, for a variety of reasons, such as food aversions or allergies, religious beliefs, or personal preferences. These students, who might not eat, cook, and/or handle bacon may have a problem participating in this lesson. Because of this, I provide a variety of alternatives for this activity, including:

  • Using turkey bacon or vegetarian bacon.
  • Allowing the use of other foods or examples that can provide a similar reaction (tea, kool-aid, butter, etc).
  • Excusing them from the cooking portion, or the entire lesson all together (depending on the severity of their situation).
