One source for copper sulfate (for the yeast toxicity activities) is products sold to kill roots in plumbing.
The Modernist Pantry is one source for food-grade sodium alginate. You can get calcium chloride from them too, or get it less expensively at the grocery in the form of Pickle Crisp. If you want to go all out, Modernist Pantry has fancy syringes and strainers for fruit caviar too. Just look on their website under “spherification.” To find other sources online, search for “food-grade sodium alginate” or “molecular gastronomy.” http://www.modernistpantry.com/sodium-alginate.html

Below are the pre/post assessments that you need to use for the Fighting with Food lessons you are teaching. We are writing these assessments when they are requested on the lesson planning forms (on the course site). As new lesson assessments are written they will be posted. This will inform us of exactly which lesson you are doing and the date you need your lesson assessment by.
