Can cooking with your kids help teach them about chemistry?

    Definitely. Cooking and baking involve chemistry. For ideas, check out Alton Brown’s show on the Food Network or check out the link below.

    I would assume you could teach children about the different states of water. While cooking pasta, you could demonstrate how liquid water when heated evaporates and condenses on the lid of a pot. In addition, you could explain that heating asparagus in boiling water causes its cells to pop, producing a bright shade of green. The first is an example of a physical change, the second a chemical change.
