Toca Kitchen 2

 

Only $.99 – Toca Kitchen 2, another fun educational app from Toca Boca. Kids take to the kitchen to cook for new characters in this sequel to Toca Kitchen. In the frig they will find all new ingredients that they can prepare in a variety of ways. They can slice, blend, boil, fry, microwave, and/or mix the foods together. They can also add seasoning to the food, but they need to be careful not to add too much. Once the food is prepared they plate it up, serve it to the character, and wait for a reaction. Kids will learn which foods each character prefers in a fun creative way. I love the questions and conversations that Toca Boca apps inspire. It’s no wonder that the original, Toca Kitchen, was a Gold Winner of the Parent’s Choice Awards in 2012.

Teachers, use this app to inspire creative writing. Write stories or poems about being a cook and the preferences of your consumers. Or, you could have kids compare and contrast the food preferences of the different characters on a graphic organizer. This app also inspires conversation about healthy eating. There are lots of possibilities for learning while having fun!
