Cooking with pictures

Cooking and baking are centerpieces of curriculum and instruction in family and consumer education. These activities work well for a range of students as they are active and often interactive; they also allow students to practice communication, collaboration, math, and literacy skills. A struggle that some students with disabilities may have, however, is following the complex directions of some recipes. To support these learners, provide visuals that show techniques, steps, and measurements. One place to find these great visuals is Recipics. It offers advanced recipes that show every step of the cooking process. The site even includes complex recipes like Curry Pasta Salad and Jamaican Brown Stew.
