Kitchen Equipment Relay
Purpose of Game:
-to identify names of kitchen utensils and equipment
-to explain the uses of different kitchen utensils and equipment
-to find and put back utensils and equipment in their proper place in the kitchen
Each kitchen will compete against the others in a relay to find specific kitchen utensils and equipment, identifying their names and uses. Teacher or student volunteer reads the “You Use Me To:” section. Each kitchen must look for the item described. The first kitchen to hold up the item must correctly identify its name. If they give the incorrect name, the next kitchen is given a turn. The kitchen that first correctly identifies the item is given a point.
As each item is identified, elaborate on its uses. Then have students put that item away in the kitchen. Explain that “you put it where you use it!
The different kitchens compete for points.
