How does food literacy connect to the BC Curriculum? We believe that most subjects can be taught with food, and food literacy can be the foundation of your cross-curricular unit plans. Whether you have your class out on a hike studying native plants, picking carrots from the school garden, or going on a field trip to a local farm, you can teach content from math, art, or careers.
These lists include the Curricular Competencies and Content that can be taught in a range of food literacy project categories below. Food literacy also connects well to students’ growth through their Core Competencies.
They are saved in a document form so that you can download and edit them to fit your unit planning.
