Learning Life Skills

 

Try cooking while considering many of the "life skills" used to cook. Think of all the steps to take to plan, organize, purchase, prepare, clean-up, store, eat etc.

 

Think of ways to learn these steps and to try and improve the way you approach these steps and how how manage them.

 

Think of other skills you use; thinking, research, communications etc. List as many as you can think of.

 

Learn through watching and helping

 

A simple and effective way to learn is by watching and heloing someone who knows how to perform an activity. A lot can be learned from watching cooking, looking around a grocery store and asking questions along the way.
