Linking Food and the Environment (LiFE): Growing Food
This inquiry-based curriculum takes students on an exciting adventure—learning science through the study of our food production system. Students learn about the cycling of matter in nature, flow of energy, and food systems while engaging in hands-on investigations of photosynthesis, food webs, agriculture, and more. The manual includes teacher lesson plans, background information, teaching tips, and tools for assessment; student activity sheets and readings; and a matrix mapping the book to National Science Education Standards and Benchmarks for Science Literacy. It was developed by educators at Teachers College, Columbia University. Growing Food is one of the science modules in the Linking Food and the Environment (LiFE) Curriculum Series.
