Join us in the journey of "motion through cooking", where students learn will both kitchen safety and the use of motion in the culinary world! The program demonstrates different kitchen equipment and cooking techniques that will help students identify different forms of thermal and kinetic energy along with changes in matter. We’ll discuss motion and its effects on food such as water, eggs, creams, chocolates, etc. A cooking demonstration will help the students visualize and understand science outside the classroom. Cooking equipment such as heat sources are also used in science therefore a discussion on conduction, convection, and radiation heat is covered. These fun cooking activities will allow the kids to use their five senses to learn and make observations. Students will also identify different devices used for taking temperature and measurements in cooking. There will be activities like crosswords, word-finds, physical games, and relay races that will keep students engaged. This program will help students develop life skills that will aid in making healthier choices. Students will love the cooking vocabulary that deals with cooking and motion.

Students Will

  • Partake in a cooking demonstration and tasting of foods that have had various forces put on them.
  • Literacy Connection: On Food and Cooking: The Science and Lore of the Kitchen, McGee, ISBN 0684800012.

  • Some students will be called up to engage in experiments using different forms of motion in cooking.
