Students at three schools were taught the curriculum by their classroom teachers and students at the remaining schools were not and considered controls.

Teachers Say

We can tell you all the great information we know about our program, but what really matters is what the teachers who used it said. Here's a few comments we received.

"The parent newsletters were great to send home. I had some parents respond to them saying 'My child ate a salad, bless you!'"

"The lessons were great, the sequence was perfect and the instructions were easy to follow, and the resources were helpful to have. My students really enjoyed the unit and they'd like to do more gardening in the spring! I thought it was interesting how little of an idea kid's have about where their food comes from even though our community has a rural and farming history. The unit got us thinking and talking about where food comes from."

- Fourth Grade Teacher
