Did you know that you can literally teach EVERY subject from the kitchen?? It’s true! There are an unlimited number of lessons that can be taught or reinforced through cooking! Most children LOVE to cook. Let’s face it: They love to do ANYTHING that involves the words “sticky” or “messy” and cooking definitely includes those!
What kinds of skills and subjects can be learned in the kitchen? Here are just a few: counting, fractions, sorting, money, weights/measures, shapes, colors, problem solving, reading skills, following directions, nutrition, cultural experiences, gardening, sharing, responsibility, safety, budgeting, and more. Those seem to be the obvious ones, but what about history, geography, and science? YES, you can teach and learn those in the kitchen as well!
Knowledge Box Central has designed a Lapbook (Cooking Basics Lapbook) that helps you to teach your kids the basics about cooking, including naming utensils, safety, measuring, and more. If you are looking for a fun way to get your kids interested in cooking, this is just what you are looking for. Your kids will each create a 3-folder Lapbook that will serve as a precious keepsake for years to come!
