My Junior Crew class will be learning all about healthy eating in health and physical education classes and measurement in maths this term. We will be using cooking activities to make the link between the two subject areas. I use the 4 Ingredients books by Kim Mc Cosker & Rachael Bermingham as my main recipe resource because the recipes are easy to use, read and very cheap to make!
Once introduced to the recipes, my primary students are able to manage to cook with very little help from me, other than to keep a watchful eye on them while they are using sharp knives and hot stoves or frying pans.
By the end of this term my students will be able to make 5 breakfast and lunch meals on their own and translate this skill from school to home.
The books can be purchased from major retail outlets in Australia and are available to purchase online for less than $20 each.
