The Science and Technology of Food

Students examine the guidelines the United States Department of Agriculture places on food. In groups, they create a list of the foods they consume and discuss the political and environmental implications of purchasing the food. They use the internet to research the food situation around the world and how food is stored and transported. To end the instructional activity, they discover how to be better food consumers to help protect areas of the world facing malnutrition and political unrest.
