Lesson Worksheet: Food Storage Science

In this worksheet, we will practice applying the steps of the design process using knowledge of food storage to create a container to keep things cold.

Q1:

A group of students built several different designs for a container to keep food cold. They tested their designs by placing an ice cube in each container and leaving the containers in a sunny place for 30 minutes. Look at the table of their results.

Size of Ice Cube (cm) after 30 Minutes4320
Material TestedStyrofoamAluminum foilTowelsShredded paper

Which material worked best?

  • ATowels
  • BAluminum foil
  • CStyrofoam
  • DShredded paper

Q2:

Which step of the design process involves identifying the product that needs to be made?

  • APlanning
  • BImproving
  • CThe materials
  • DBuilding
  • EThe idea

Q3:

A group of students are talking about how to keep food cold.

Who is correct?

  • AJacob only
  • BMadison and Matthew
  • CMatthew only
  • DMadison only
  • EScarlett only

Q4:

A group of students have built a food storage container to help keep their food cold. They now have to test their container to see if it works.

They talked about the type of data they need to collect to see if their container works.

Who is correct?

  • ANoah
  • BAmelia
  • CEmma
  • DAll of them

Q5:

Look at the graphs.

Which graph shows a timeline of food storage throughout history?

  • AGraph 1
  • BGraph 2
  • CGraph 3
  • DNone of them

Q6:

A group of students are talking about what happens during the planning step of the design process.

Who is correct?

  • AMason
  • BAmelia
  • CNoah
  • DChloe
  • ECharlotte

Q7:

Samar wants to build a container to keep her food cold. She has an idea of the type of container she wants to build and she knows what materials she can use.

What is her next step?

  • AImprove
  • BBuild
  • CPlan
  • DShare her solution with others

Q8:

Sally wants to build a container to keep her food cold. Sally has planned, built, and tested her container.

What is her next step?

  • APlan
  • BImprove
  • CShare her solution with others
  • DIdea

Q9:

A group of students is testing their design of a food-storage container used to keep food cold. They place an ice cube in the container and leave it in a sunny place for 30 minutes. Look at the table of their results.

Time (Minutes) 0 10 20 30
Size of Ice Cube (Centimeters) 4 2 0 0

Their goal is for the ice to melt as little as possible over 30 minutes. Have they met their goal?

  • ANo
  • BYes

What should their next step be?

  • ATo find materials
  • BTo build
  • CTo improve
  • DTo plan

Q10:

Adel is writing a list of the steps of the design process.

Which step of the design process has Adel forgotten?

  • AImproving
  • BFinding constraints
  • CBrainstorming
  • DMaking criteria
  • EDesigning
