Cooking to Learn 3: Recipies From Around the World
Integrated Reading and Writing Activities
Reading Level 1 - 3.5
Interest Level 1 - 12
The Cooking to Learn Series is integrated reading and writing activities that motivate students to learn basic reading and writing skills with the fun step-by-step cooking activities and corresponding worksheets in these three books. The easy-to-follow recipes offer life-skills experience as students prepare food themselves using common inexpensive ingredients.
Each recipe features illustrated and non-illustrated activities to allow teachers to use the same lesson plan with students of varying abilities. Recipes include a selection of breakfast, lunch or dinner, snack and dessert, and drink choices.
The simple, real-world activities were designed to provide hands-on ways to help students improve sequencing, reading comprehension, vocabulary, expressive language, problem-solving, written language, and social skills. Multiple-choice activities prepare students for standardized test formats.
Cooking to Learn 3 includes 25 multicultural recipes, representing various countries and regions around the world. The lesson structure remains the same as in the first two in the series, with the addition of two new features. A page covering interesting facts about the country or region and a page with a black-and-white outline of the national or regional flag are provided along with each recipe. The book features simple recipes from Canada, China, India, Ireland, Mexico, Tahiti, Vietnam, and more. Cooking to Learn 3 also includes an Index of Skills and an Assessment Checklist.
