Ideas for a children's cooking class

I am looking for healthy ideas for a children's cooking class. I'd like to introduce the students to the very basics of cooking (i.e., measuring) and nutrition.

For equipment, we are limited to a toaster oven, an electric skillet, an ice cream maker, a blender and a microwave.

Ideas so far: skillet cornbread, vegetarian maki (rice made in advance), possibly sorbet (final day celebration).

Any ideas or input is greatly appreciated!
