Where does our food come from? It traveled to the grocery store somehow.

This collection was designed to empower students to make their own decisions regarding their nutrition, diet, and their impact on the environment.

- Students will do a brief study of the parts of plants that we eat to help them understand the origin of their meal.

- Children will use a map and the food in their lunchboxes to figure out the ‘food miles’ their food traveled to get to them.

- Students will learn to make a simple, healthy meal

A comprehensive list of materials needed and detailed directions are included in this packet. Each experience can be split into its own lesson.
