Cookie Creations

Cookie Creations lesson plan

Measurement and cooking meet creativity with these illustrated recipes for cookies.

  • 1.

    Read several recipes for cookies, baked or unbaked. Compare ingredients. Make different versions of the same cookie. Find out how ingredients affect cookie taste, texture, and shape.

  • 2.

    Imagine what your favorite cookie recipe might contain. On a large index card (dictated on story paper for younger children and special needs students), print the name of your cookie recipe with Crayola® Colored Pencils. List ingredients and their amounts to create exactly the kind of cookie you want.

  • 3.

    Draw a picture of each ingredient next to the list with Crayola Crayons, Multicultural Crayons, and Colored Pencils.

  • 4.

    Draw a picture of the finished cookie on the other side of your recipe.

  • 5.

    To practice measurement, make the cookies and taste test the recipes. Make a chart of favorites and reasons.


  • Children research ingredients typically found in cookies.
  • Children write recipes for creative cookies, using standard measurements and imaginative ingredients.
  • Children illustrate the ingredients for their recipes and the baked product.
  • Children make cookies with their recipes and taste test the results.


  • Write recipes for foods that come from islands, mountains, or deserts. Find out what foods grow in those places.
  • Write recipes for birthday cakes, salads, or any other foods.
  • Research cookie recipes from various cultures. What are the similarities? Differences?
