This lesson helps students understand how to read labels on body care products, packaged foods, cleaning products and more! It also focuses on the concepts of organic and non-GMO foods, and what those labels mean for our bodies and our planet. The lesson will also help train students to decipher "greenwashing", to determine whether a product is actually good for the environment or whether it is just a marketing ploy. Students will investigate some of the common myths of genetically-modified food and create a PSA to fellow students based upon their findings to help educate others.
