In the kitchen, students learn many things such as measuring the ingredients in the mixture, mixing, examining the structure and color changes of food, smelling and tasting the mixtures, and understanding the importance of healthy and good nutrition. In addition to recognizing the ingredients during the kitchen work, the smell and tastes they receive before and during cooking also contribute to the personality and biological development of children.
