This oven will allow us to cook real, healthy meals in a variety of ways. My students all do best with hands-on methods of learning. Cooking allows them to learn in a way that is meaningful and fun. By donating to our cooking project you will improve student achievement by helping them learn and remember critical math, reading and science skills. We spend Thursday afternoons reading recipes, reviewing key vocabulary words, practicing estimation skills to measure the number of portions needed, and doubling or halving ingredients to calculate the amount of food we need to buy. Then students practice navigating grocery store websites, tallying the cost of the ingredients, and calculating things like discounts and tax. The next day I purchase the ingredients and we compare the receipt to the math we did the day before to check our estimations. Next, WE COOK! Students practice good hygiene routines and safe food preparation by learning proper handwashing techniques and how to wear PPE such as gloves and masks while cooking. They are involved in every part of the cooking process from pouring, scooping, measuring, adding, mixing, cracking eggs, and actually cooking the food! We use the recipe of the week as a science lesson on nutrition, portion sizes, and connected topics like states of matter, how heat causes chemical change, and different types of food groups. We've even used a lesson on pumpkin pie to talk about fruits, seeds, and how squash grow! This oven will give my students access to a wide variety of recipes, activities, and learning. Donating will contribute to an increase in their knowledge of science, math, and life-skills and improve their ability to function independently in their adult lives.
