Math activities with Kitchens.

There's a lot you can do with kitchens.

You can cook in kitchens and look in the cabinets, among a lot of other things...
  • What if you could redesign your kitchen?  What would it look like?  Take measurements of your space and design what to do with it.
  • Count how many drawers you have vs cabinets. Are all your cabinets the same size?  How many plates and bowls are in your cabinets?
    • Organize the silverware.  Is there the same number of all the forks, spoons, and knives?
  • Look in the refrigerator. How many jars are in there?  Make charts based on the food in the fridge...
    • Bar graphs on how much food is on each shelf.
    • Venn diagrams of who eats what food.
    • Pie charts with expiration dates.
There are a ton of things to do... What can you do in your kitchen?


  1. Great ideas!

    What about...rewrite this recipe that yields 4 servings to yield 8, etc.

    The kitchen is always great for math!

  2. You keep coming up with such good ideas. I'm enjoying them. May incorporate a few with our Friend Flat Stanley after the April Challenge. Thanks for the tip on the blog you found, plan to check it out.


  3. Amazing ideas! Here math is all around us and I was certain when I was in school that it was only in the classroom.



Thanks SO much for stopping by! I appreciate your comments and any ideas you share! Have a wonderful day : )
