Grade 5 Program
Grade 5 Program
The Grade 5 Program offers an in-depth look at food security, and a chance for kids to build on concepts throughout the school year. This program is comprised of five learning units, including:
• The Real Dirt on Food Systems
• The More We Get Together!
• Growing Back to our Roots
• Cooking Traditions
• Scraps to Snacks
For more information on program goals, dates, and curriculum connections, please refer to our Grade 5 Program brochure.
Read Kamla's JASTE article, "Creating a Food-centred Curriculum that Promotes Activism".
Take a peek at our Sustainable Food Systems Education Guide. The guide provides the background information used to design many of The Stop’s activities and workshops for children. While this 54-page guide was originally designed for Grade 5 classroom teachers in The Stop's programs, it includes information on food systems that can be useful to most teachers at the elementary level, and educators in community settings working on developing programs around food issues. The guide is divided into five short units, and includes 25 suggested activities and four personal stories that help illustrate issues around social justice. There's also a list of additional resources that includes books, websites, blogs, and videos that have become popular in our programs.
