Hungry for knowledge? Cook up some math fun playing the LeapFrog game Cooking. Recipes on the Road, which works with LeapPad Ultra, Leappad2 Power, LeapPad2, LeapPad1, LeapsterGS, and Leapster Explorer learning game systems (sold separately). Help run the family food truck using mathematics skills. Follow recipes, select ingredients, assemble dishes, and interact with hungry customers. Pick, measure, mix, stack, slice, and dice—and don’t forget to add a pinch of fun.
The Perfect Recipe for Learning
From measuring ingredients and calculating weight to doubling an order and weighing and counting ingredients, cooking is naturally chock-full of mathematics. In this game, children ages 5 to 8 years can enjoy the fun of cooking as they explore decimals, fractions, percentages, and a variety of mathematics topics in a context they can translate to the real world—cooking. Players start at just the right place in the curriculum depending on their age and level up or down through the questions at just the right pace for them. With 63 levels of curriculum and more than 37 skills to explore, children can develop key skills every time they play.
A Slice of Life
Make learning simply an ingredient to fun as children apply mathematics skills to tried-and-true recipes and help run the family business. Players must pick the right ingredients and measure the proper amounts to prepare exactly what customers crave so they’ll keep coming back for more. This means heating food to the correct temperature, calculating the right weight, and measuring the necessary quantities of ingredients, assembling each dish for balanced presentation and being ready to double an order at a moment’s notice.
Keep the Fun Rolling
Built-in mini-games challenge kids to pave the road for food truck success. If another food truck has a great dish, players can experiment with their own version to uncover the special ingredient. If a friend shows up at the window with a warning that the health inspector is coming, it’s time to shift gears for a quick kitchen clean-up activity. Players can use the tips they earn to buy artistic upgrades and customize their trucks. They can also unlock supreme variations of existing recipes—these fun fixings really “spice up” a dish and always impress customers.
