Teacher Resource: Big Ideas

Most people engage in the act of eating every day. What we eat and how we grow, process, prepare, and consume food profoundly affect the lives and welfare of humans and other beings, yet our food systems remain a mystery to many people. It is vital that we all understand the linkages between the food we eat, the ways that culture shapes our food choices and behaviors, the relationship between food and our health, and the interconnections between our food systems and the environment.

Big Ideas links food, culture, health, and the environment in a new alignment with academic standards. Big Ideas is for grades K-12. Download the resource at the link below.

This addition to the Center for Ecoliteracy’s Big Ideas suite of resources was created for publication on the National Geographic Education website in conjunction with National Geographic magazine.
