Great website that explains the thermodynamics of cooking. Its great how thermodynamics can be incorporated to everyday matters. I think the description of the five processes for heating food was.... most interesting.

This is an experiment that all children can follow and teaches them simple reactions that occur while cooking. It translates what they are learning to something they observe everyday and can understand.  It  will also intrigue them to qusstion why and how certain things occur in nature.
