From the Cave to the Kitchen

In hundreds of thousands of years, and seven steps, man has gone from discovering fire for cooking, to having ovens in nearly every home. We began with log fires and rotisseries over the flame, developed stone ovens, moved these ovens into buildings, and then into our homes.

What else is in the kitchen? How has the kitchen, as a building, evolved? What had to occur for the kitchen to be brought into the home? What about plumbing, the stove top, and the refrigerator. Can your students create simplified timelines outlining these kitchen innovations?
