Farms and Food

In our Farms and Food lesson plan, students learn about how farms produce much of the food that we eat. Students learn the steps of farming, why farms are so important, and how food gets from the farms to grocery stores.

Our Farms and Food lesson plan introduces young students to farming and food’s journey to their plates. Students learn to appreciate the process and steps related to farming and the food they eat each day. During this lesson, students are asked to use their creativity to draw a picture related to each of the steps of the food journey, which helps solidify their understanding of the food journey in a fun, interactive way. Students are also asked to fill in the blanks in a provided paragraph with the correct terms, demonstrating their understanding of the lesson vocabulary.

At the end of the lesson, students will be able to identify characteristics of a farm, describe the steps related to growing crops, and explain other aspects of farms and food, as well as the importance of farms.

    Teaching a 3rd student with Lesson Plans from Clarendon Learning

    I found your materials invaluable to the teaching experience of having to teach a 3rd grade child. I have always taught in adult education and was wondering where I would find the right materials for a child, that would be educational but fun. I googled, and I found your website. With just a little donation for the materials/teaching resources I received, (which was quite a bit), this turned out to be the best investment I ever made as a teacher into my student's learning. The materials provided a seamless teaching and learning resource to both teacher and student. I would recommend Clarendon Learning to any educator who is serious about teaching. Thank you Clarendon Learning, you are the best!
