Where Did Our Food Come From?

We wanted to ensure that the key concepts and student learning outcomes in the Curriculum for a Sustainable Future can be used in Alberta classrooms, and add value to classroom teaching and learning. The answer is YES. This powerful learning story from Barb Hazenveld's grade 1 classroom at Westmount School, Foothills School Division is one of 13 that showcases the use of the Curriculum for a Sustainable Future. 

A BIG thank you to the school divisions and teachers that willingly shared their classroom learning stories via video and included a detailed Project Overview.

Where Did Our Food Come From?

Barb Hazenveld, Westmount School, Grade 1 - Foothills School Division

Grade 1 students in Westmount School  learned about their ‘Community in the Past’ in Social Studies.  Students explored  the pioneers need to grow their own food, and the question: How did the Pioneers grow their food?  This unit is project-based learning that started with the initial inquiry of pioneer food growing skills.
