In this multi-day lesson plan, which is adaptable for grades 6 through 8, students use BrainPOP resources to build awareness of the natural world and make connections to fresh, locally grown foods, organic farming methods, and a school garden. Students will learn to increase healthy eating habits by growing, harvesting, and eating more fresh fruit, veggies, and herbs at school, as well as working with school lunch staff to incorporate garden items into a lunch menu. Students will also visit a local farm stand, organic market, or restaurant to learn about the importance of locally grown produce and present their findings to others.
