Farm-to-Pizza lesson plan
August 8, 2013
Everyone knows about farm-to-table or farm-to-fork, but kids will really get engaged with MSU Extension's Farm-to-Pizza lesson plan. It is a fun, hands-on lesson plan to help connect elementary school students with locally grown foods -- including the foods that make up one of their favorite dishes -- pizza!
The lesson plan can be easily adapted to all grade levels -- even adults. However, this lesson plan is written with K-4th-grade students in mind.
This farm-to-pizza presentation will get students excited about making their own pizza with locally grown food while also educating them about fruits and vegetables, Michigan-grown foods, and what kind of foods can make students healthy and strong.
After students make pizza in class they can also take home this farm-to-pizza handout, which lets them know how they can take common at-home ingredients and make a simple, healthful pizza for themselves.
