Ten Titles for Feeding Food Literacy
Try One-Bite Salsa
In this lesson, students try "just one bite" of salsa from the garden. They make inferences as they read "Chicks and Salsa" and then write salsa recipes that include their favorite ingredients.
Please Pass the (Fresh) Peas
In this lesson, students use their five senses to explore peas three ways. They read, "Night of the Veggie Monster," and think about their food feelings. They discuss their favorite dinner vegetable and draw themselves feeling good while eating it.
I Will Never, Not Ever, Eat a Tomato
In this lesson, students are invited to try new foods. First, they watch a video that prepares them to taste three different kinds of tomatoes. After tasting, they listen to the story "I Will Never, Not Ever, Eat a Tomato" and talk about the foods the characters ate. After the story, children use their imaginations to write fantasy food tricks that invite someone to try new foods.
