This unit is so that you can teach students both urban and rural about "Urban Farming". This lesson is a really great one!! It goes through the history of urban farming from the late 1800's through today. I had a great time making this mini unit. It also allows a great opportunity for you to talk about new ways to "farming" as well as farmer's markets, etc. Granted this unit is customized more toward NC, it would be very easy to change it and make it more user friendly for your location.
