This teaching unit focuses on teaching both information text and independent living skills. The unit is broken down into five sections.
1. Cooking Utensils and Mixing Tools
3. Cooking/Baking Recipes
Each section can be taught separately as used as a stepping stone to the next section. This unit can be taught over a few weeks or several months. In my own classroom, I taught vocabulary and recipes over a few weeks and teach the development of grocery lists, budget, shopping, and cooking throughout the school year. I strive to cook or bake every two weeks. My students have also developed menus, budgeted and gone grocery shopping for special events such as receptions and birthday parties,
