Lesson Plan

Canola was developed right here in Manitoba in 1974. Canola oil is found in many of the foods we eat, including salad dressing, margarines, cookies, and granola bars. Canola oil can be found in non-edible products such as lipstick, hand cream, soap, lip balm, bath oils, sunscreen, lotion, and print ink. In this fun and surprisingly challenging activity, you and your students learn how to grade canola oil and crush canola seeds. You’ll also learn why it’s important to do a good job! This package includes instructional guide, canola seeds, seed counter, roller and tape – everything you need to teach this hands-on activity for all grade levels.
