Heating and Cooking Utensils

Kitchens are usually warm places. Can your child suggest why this should be? As well as radiators giving out heat, the room is heated when people are cooking, as both the hob and the oven provide heat when they are on.
Look at all the different types of cooking utensils, avoiding sharp knives. Ask your child to sort the different utensils into various groups. They might sort them by material, mixing utensils, chopping utensils, utensils for smoothing, utensils for squeezing, utensils for draining, measuring utensils. Discuss why the various utensils are made out of different materials. Look at weighing scales – those that work like a see-saw, with weights, and those that show the weight on a dial. Why do we need to be able to weigh food?
