Cooking Experiments Enhance Learning Opportunities
Preschoolers love to cook, and more than that, preschoolers love to eat. Most preschool or day care buildings are equipped with a kitchen, which provides classes with daily snacks courtesy of the center cook, but it's fun to give the cook a break at times.
Kids thoroughly enjoy getting into the middle of making snack creations so help students create their own personal or classroom snacks centered around classroom themes. Snacks and recipes are extremely versatile and are often worked into units covering different topics. Food can even be associated with teaching letters, numbers and math concepts.
As a preschool teacher, you can bring the fun, excitement and sense of accomplishment out of the kitchen and into the classroom with recipes created by preschoolers. The children will rejoice when they consume yummy treats made from scratch. Obtain the necessary materials from your center, preschool funds, or donations from parents to ease the cost on your personal wallet.
