Animal Welfare Food Labels

The Problem

I wish for my 5th grade students to feel empowered by the opportunity to educate others about a real and significant issue.

Our Plan

With a parter, students will research one of the 27 food labels that are listed in the Animal Welfare Institute's Guide to Animal Welfare Food Labels. Then each team of students will prepare an oral presentation and poster that they will employ to educate classmates about the one label that they have studied. Subsequently, a day will be scheduled for students to set up their posters in the cafeteria area at our local Whole Foods Market. In groups, students will be taken to the store to staff their displays, which they will utilize to help them educate shoppers about the confusion surrounding animal welfare food labels.
