Farming and Food is our final unit for our second year cycle of Gather 'Round. Students will be learning about the journey of their food: from commercial farms to processing plants and how it arrives on the grocery store shelves we buy it from. Each lesson has a hot button topic to address some of the deep controversy and different ideas and opinions about food, and we leave lots of open-ended discussion for you to decide as a family what you think.
Your unit project for this unit includes learning how to create a shopping list, recognizing the different prices of food and what can effect that price, observing the difference between organic vs. non-organic food, imported vs. local food, fair trade, and more. Students will create a food log, track where the food in their pantry comes from, and finish off the unit by writing, "The Story of my Food." With hands on experiments, a blog post full of resources and videos, engaging lessons, and rich discussions, we're ending off year 2 with a bang!
