Why Lesson Planet?
On day one of the "Organic Mechanic Part I" lesson, learners try to remove the waxy coating of an apple and consider pesticides that may be represented by this addition to our food. On day two, they research pesticides online and participate in a think-pair-share activity. On day three, they visit the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) website to discover what is being done about pesticide problems. This can be used as part of your health curriculum on food and nutrition.
