Yummy Arithmetic

6 08 2008

This week we were in the kitchen again cooking with math. Today we were pastry chefs, making bunny cupcakes and banana pudding! We measured, whisked and poured carefully so that our treats came out with just the right taste.

Over at the sand table we put our thinking caps on and applied our math skills to make correct measurements. Making accurate measurements is critical in baking, measurements are all over the kitchen: a cup of this, a teaspoon of that, a 350 degree oven, so it’s super important to be exact, because you don’t want to end up with a mouthful of salt, or worse, burnt cupcakes!

We drew pictures of our favorite dishes. Some of us drew piping hot pizzas loaded with cheese, while some of us chose juicy, colorful fruits.

What’s YOUR favorite dish? Let us know what your dream meal would consist of! Go on – get CREATIVE!
