With widespread school cancellations, we know many adults are learning how to homeschool kids on the fly.
In addition to recipes, our team at America's Test Kitchen Kids also develops hands-on activities and experiments at the intersection of food and STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics) learning. Specifically designed for at-home learning, most of these activities don't require much equipment and rely on pantry ingredients. Here are six of our favorites, along with the key learning goals of each. (Bonus: The first three are all edible!)
When you click on each link, it will send you to its page on the America’s Test Kitchen Kids website where, in addition to the instructions, you’ll find a kid-friendly breakdown of what happens in the activity to help reinforce their learning. You’ll also find our entire library of 150+ kid-tested and kid-approved recipes, STEAM activities and experiments, and quizzes—all currently free for you to use. We will also be posting a weekly Kitchen Classroom series, giving you a day by day playbook of hands-on learning (and edible fun!) you can tackle in your kitchen.
