This week Grade Two is launching our new Unit of Inquiry called, “Sustainable Production and Consumption.” In this unit the children will be inquiring into: How food gets from the farm to their tables. As a tuning in, students were asked the question “What’s in your lunchbox?” Like scientists, they investigated/observed what was in their lunchbox and wrote about what they saw, thought and wondered. Some of their responses were:

“I see seaweed in my lunchbox. I wonder what ingredients it has.” -Sophie

“I wonder how kiwi grows.” -Jillian

“I wonder how I can recycle my juice box.” -Christopher

“I wonder how they make fruit roll ups.” -Ayva

“I see cucumber. Where do the seeds come from?” -Nick
