Nancy - Is it possible to print sources for these titles? We on the

Literacy Project, and what not.

>Here a couple of guides I've found useful in our middle school program:
>Food for Thought: Lessons from the Land (put out by Sonoma County
>Agricultural Literacy Project). It's geared towards grades 3-6, but I found

>The Growing Classroom (Roberta Jaffe, Gary Appel, published by Addison
>Wesley). Curriculum from LifeLab in Santa Cruz, the all-purpose,
>we-have-lessons-on-just-about-everything. Aimed at K-6.
>French Fries and the Food System: A year-round curriculum connecting youth
>with farming and food (Sara Coblyn, a publication of the Food Project,
>www.thefoodproject.org). More aimed at middle and high school.
>A special bonus: one of my all time favorites to use with kids is Paul
>Fleischman's Seedfolks, a short novel told from the point of view of a

>Good luck! I'd love to know what you come up with.
