    Before We Start:

    You will need the three previous handouts pertaining to knife safety and knife cuts.

    Also, in the pantry, 1 member from each team needs to get one knife kit for their table. Also, grab a 3D Knife Cuts Template from the pantry. Another team member needs to grab a cutting board for their table, including padding. And a third member needs to safely bring back a chef's knife to their table. Set up your cutting board and knife at the far end of your group's table.

    Class Activity:

    Complete the study guide regarding knife cuts.

    Using the Knife Cut Template:

    • Put your full name and class period at the top of the right-hand corner.
    • Using a pencil, at the top of the section in small writing, list the dimensions of the cut.
    • Using a pencil and a ruler, draw the exact measurements of the uniform cuts along the right side of each section. Make sure to draw the end and overhead views when necessary.
    • You will leave a section mostly open to place your knife cuts when in lab

    Once finished, wrap in cling wrap, and place in your designated kitchen drawer.
