To gamify this unit I have decided to have students earn a section of a larger map as they complete the stations and activities that I have created. This map outlines where foods come from as we discuss it in class. They "race" across the world to determine where their food comes from.
1. History and Geography of Herbs and Spices - students map one herb and one spice. determine where they come from and mapping it.
2. How did that get in my lunch box - students explore the import and export chain in regards to a product in their lunchbox
3. Vanilla- from farm to fork
Then students will work in groups in the "spice it up challenge." Now that students have learned where their food comes from they will research and create a seasoning mix for popcorn. I have decided to make this a challenge and have students compete against each other to determine which is the best.
