Food and You

Students identify why humans are dependent on natural resources and the problems associated with their use and demonstrate how humans affect their environment. They also describe the different components and natural resources that go into making their favorite foods. Finally, students compare and contrast the resources going into different foods and analyze which foods are more sustainable, or environmentally friendly.

Hi, I was recently hired as a middle school science teacher in Newark, NJ. I received a call on a Friday and was asked to begin the following Monday. As a new teacher, and with only 3 days to prepare, I was really feeling the pressure. The school requires 2 weeks of lesson plans every Sunday, so I began searching the web for help. Thank goodness I found Lesson Planet. I still use the site everyday to form great lessons and activities for the kids.
