Pizza Pie that is!
Today I had the opportunity to give my first lesson to the 2011-2012 4th grade class I was allowed to adopt. We had a great session on how everything that goes into making pizza comes from Agriculture.
I found a great lesson plan that North Dakota Farm Bureau has posted on their website. We went through a power point presentation on all the parts of the pizza and how they are related to agriculture. Students were surprised to hear that each ingredient had a tie to agriculture's vast industry.
From the wheat that makes the crust to the dairy cow that makes the cheese we discovered many aspects of agriculture and had a great first time over view of the industry.
In the following months I will get into more specific sectors of Agriculture, can't wait to see what this group has in store!
