Explorations: Food

When using The Science of Food: Explorations magazine, students match foods with the appropriate food groups and learn about food labels, plants and photosynthesis, food as fuel for the body, and more.

This magazine is an integrated component of the Food unit. It also may be used as a stand-alone reading and language arts activity.

The Science of Food: Explorations may be used with a broad range of grade levels. It is most appropriate for use with students in grades 3–5.
