Aside from simply learning about food, we bring classroom learning into the kitchen by integrating different academic areas.  For example, in reading, recipes must be read and labels understood before cooking may begin.  Many students will gain a better understanding of math skills such as addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, fractions, geometry and more while whipping up mouth-watering dishes.  Science may be incorporated when students create chemical reactions such as freezing, melting, dissolving, and crystalizing that naturally occur in the cooking process. 

The art of food preparation involves the use of fine motor skills, which are controlled by both sides of the brain. Why does this matter? Well, research has shown that fine motor skills predict future academic success(1).


What are fine motor skills? Unlike gross motor skills which use the large muscle groups for walking, running, sitting and jumping, fine motor skills (small muscle groups) are used for more intricate body mechanics such as writing, drawing, feeding and dressing oneself. Many do not understand how important it is to actively develop fine motor skills in young learners. While gross motor skills are important, it is the fine motor skills that foster independence and confidence in children.
