I really liked this book. I would use this book to introduce how to be safe while cooking and how to correctly measure things while you cook. I would try to make the firehouse chili as a class and measure of the ingredients together. I would see if my school would allow us to cook it in the kitchen or have an employee who works in the kitchen do it. I think this book could be used in the classroom to bring excitement about measurement when cooking.
I think that Pigs in the Pantry is a great book for math and experimenting with cooking. This book can be used as a read aloud before participating in a project of making cookies from scratch in the classroom. its good for learning how to measure and it uses fractions so I would say that it could be recommended for use with 3rd grade or higher.
Extra star for math integration: Measurement. Mrs. Pig is sick in bed, but her family treats her to a home-cooked meal nonetheless. We have the recipe (they're making chili) and watch to see what mistakes Mr. Pig makes as he prepares the dish. At the end are measurement conversions, an invitation to recreate the recipe in the metric system.

I loved this book, especially the illustrations! Mrs. Pig is sick, so Mr. Pig and the piglets try to make her chili. This would be a great book to use to teach the various kinds of measurement as it involves measuring out ingredients. I would use this book for first grade.

This book is a great demonstration of how math and science work together. some pigs have a recipe to help get rid of a cold. The recipe is included in the book. I recommend this book for 2nd-4th grades.

I love these pig books! In this one, Mrs. Pig is sick, so Mr. Pig and the piglets decide to cook her some warm chili. This book would be great for teaching students about measurement!

this teaching ways you are doing math while cooking. it can also be used to teach a lesson about chemical change in science.
