When I taught k, we took our students to the district kitchen as a field trip.
We also tied in cooking to our monthly theme: Japan - rice, Ireland - potatoes, farm - Little Red Hen - bread (bisquick biscuits), healthy me - fruit salad, Mother's day tea - scones, etc. & we always made cookies to give to our 5th graders during testing. However, nobody wanted to try Vegemite when we studied Australia!!!
Behavior/incentive chart: pizza/nachos (add toppings to it), a chef - add his/her tools (they can be tools for learning too)
