A 10 or 11 year old (5th or 6th grader), can gets their first exposure to ratio and proportion by watching their parents cook grains. To make great oatmeal or rice, you need to mix water and the grain in a specific ratio. A proportion of 2 to 1 (water to oatmeal) will work, but produces a watery bowl of oatmeal. While a 1 to 1 ratio produces a thick bowl of oatmeal.
