    Another thing to keep in mind of thinking about teaching with food would be religious beliefs about wasting food.
    We have used colored cereals, colored cookies, and trail mix things as manipulatives for counting, grouping, sorting and graphing. Each child gets his own pile to work with & gets to eat it when done!
    We have used cheerios strung on yarn or pipe cleaners as fire hoses during our fire prevention unit.
    We made apple sauce & apple crisp with the apples we picked at the orchard field trip as well as compared colors, sizes, etc.
    Chocolate bars are often used to introduce and explain the concept of fractions.
    Cooking, with it's weighing and measuring is good for math activities & the baking (rising, blending, etc.) is good for science study.
