Where the food we eat comes from?


  • Knowing where the food we eat comes from
  • Using different communication channels (verbal and written, graphic, symbolic)
  • Establishing causal relationships
  • Collaborating on and contributing to a common task


Compile a list of food and drink items commonly consumed by children and their families (e.g. after having discussed the day and its main meals). On a board and in the children’s copybooks, trace each food item back to the raw materials it is made from and the plant or animal it is linked to (e.g. bread – flour – wheat; wine – grapes; cheese – milk – cow). Products that are also produced in Italy can be separated from those that come from other countries (e.g. coffee or cocoa). Share experiences of contact with the plants and animals we consume and observations thereof.
