Student went beyond the lessons. They made many more connections between the food we eat and where it comes from.
Great scientific inquiry for young children.

Three pages for $2.00 REALLY. This won't go very far in the classroom. Great idea but not for the price.
On  June 2, 2013Crystal Meyers answered:
I am sorry that you are dissatisfied with the package. It is clearly stated in the product overview that there are only three pages.

These worksheets helped my lower level readers understand where our food comes from for a persuasive writing unit on nutrition. It is a great resource to use in a small group to reinforce what was taught in the whole class lesson.
