      Cooking, including food preparation that doesn’t involve any heating, is a great way to teach life skills and integrate learning in a meaningful and enjoyable way across curriculum areas. When children are involved in food preparation they may be developing:

      • Social skills of cooperation, turn taking, sharing, patience
      • Literacy skills – reading and following the recipe, selecting ingredients, writing a menu and invitations, writing a recount, writing a shopping list
      • Mathematics – counting e.g. the number of eggs, measuring with spoons and cups, measuring time, sharing (e.g. the number of cookies, how many slices)
      • Science – mixing, adding or removing heat
      • Safety – with knives, peelers, hot implements, and ingredients
      • Social Studies: Culture – when preparing ethnic food
