Fruit Shakes

Getting ingredients ready

Why cooking?  Children gain knowledge in multiple content domains:

  • Language development and literacy
  • Mathematical thinking
  • Multiple areas of science
  • Social studies

When making fruit shakes, children can learn the ingredients look different before blending compared to after blending.  They also learn the amount of each ingredient affects the flavor of the fruit shake. 

Now, time to experiment!
