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.
