Growing Food is the first module of the LiFE (Linking Food in the Environment) curriculum written by a talented team of science and nutrition educators at the Teachers College Columbia University with funding from the Science Education Partnership Award (SEPA) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH). It is designed to help students embark on an exciting adventure of learning science through the study of our food production system. By investigating the question, “How does nature provide us with food?” students learn about the cycling of matter in nature, flow of energy, and food systems. They explore and analyze their personal food choices through scientific reasoning, and apply what they’ve learned through discussions and debates to personal decisions related to food systems, health and the natural environment.
