Farm-to-Kids Texas Mixed K-2

Welcome to the Farm-To-Kids Texas K-2 Educational Module. This program contains six engaging lessons that use hands-on experience to teach students introductory concepts in biology while promoting healthy, local, seasonal eating. Each lesson covers a new topic in the biological sciences and ends with a recipe that the whole class can prepare and eat together. At the end of this educational module, students should know why plant products are useful to humans, be able to identify various plant parts and name their functions, and list the successional stages of a plant and animal life cycle.
