1. Scraping or rubbing away the foreign substance:

What would you use to remove the butter from the plate? A piece of paper towel or a dish brush.

 Then how was it removed? It was removed by scraping or rubbing.

Suppose some one has sharpened a pencil and let the pieces fall on the floor, what would you take to remove the foreign substance from the floor? A broom.
What would you say you are doing with the broom? Sweeping.

What would you say you are doing? Dusting.

Name one way of removing a foreign substance. Scraping or rubbing it away.

2. Dissolving the foreign substance and then scraping it away:

Show a much soiled dish towel and ask what is usually done to clean it. It is washed.

Ask your kids to tell just what they mean by that. The towel is put in water and soap used on it.

What effect will the soap and water have on the foreign substance? They will soften or dissolve it.

Then what must be done next? The towel must be washed in washing machine or washed with the hands.

What effect has this operation on the foreign substance? It scrapes or rubs the foreign substance away.

Then we have another way of cleaning: By first dissolving the foreign substance, and then scraping or rubbing it away.

A number of well-known cleaning operations may then be given, and the kids should be asked in each case to decide the method used—such as, scrubbing a table, cleaning the teeth, or washing dishes.

NOTE: Kids should fully participate in cleaning according to their ability. Don't forget to give them some harder tasks and encourage initiative. Show them that everyone learns from one another and everyone contributes.

Many important studies into human brain development is proving that parents truly are their children’s first teachers. Given what we know today about brain development, it is clear that parents should not leave to schools alone the important tasks of child's learning and development.

Helpful Tips
The kitchen should be thoroughly cleaned after each meal and after each  cooking with kids activity.

If it has become disarranged, it should be put in order before the next meal is to be prepared.

While the cooking is under way, everything should be kept in an orderly condition.

As soon as the meal is completed, the left-over food should be covered and put away; the scraps and waste material should be gathered and disposed of; and the dishes, pots, and pans should be scraped, and washed in dishwasher or in hot, soapy water, then rinsed in clear water, dried, and put away.

The table and working areas should be scrubbed, the stove cleaned, the floor swept and scrubbed whenever necessary, and everything put neatly in its place.
