Reflection: Flexibility Pancake Science - Section 1: Engage


Some students may not eat pancakes due to gluten/egg allergies or personal preferences. These students may have a problem participating in this lesson. Because of this, I provide a variety of alternatives for this activity, including:

  • Providing gluten free and/or egg free pancake mixes that will still show similar reactions.
  • Allowing the use of other foods or examples that can provide a similar reaction (gluten free bread or cake mixes, etc)
  • Allowing the use of gloves while handling gluten foods or allowing students to mix those ingredients that will not cause a reaction.
  • Excusing them from the cooking portion or the entire lesson all together  (depending on the severity of their situation).

Be sure choose an alternative that is suitable for the student, and ALWAYS consult parents ahead of time!
