Teaching Concepts to Young Children Through Cultural Cooking Experiences. Bilingual/Bicultural Child Development Associate Pilot Project: Module XIV.
Smith, Teresa R.
This Child Development Associate (CDA) module, the fourteenth in a series of 16, suggests ways concepts can be taught by involving preschool children in carefully planned classroom cooking activities. Designed for bilingual/bicultural preschool teacher trainees, the module provides tips on food preparation as a learning experience. Required materials, equipment and safety rules are indicated and a guide to planning and presenting cooking activities, including four sample lessons, is provided. The module includes 28 recipes (ranging from gorditas de manteca to marshmallow popcorn balls), techniques and activities for following up and reinforcing cooking experiences and several Spanish songs, rhymes and riddles. This module focuses on specific behaviors that directly relate to CDA Competencies 1 and 2. (RH)
