Using numerous activities to enhance literacy and math skills, students will be involved in enjoyable, hands-on cooking experiences.

These cooking experiences will be enhanced with related activities that encourage children to write, graph, sort objects, solve math problems, and create colorful art projects. Grades K-3rd.
