Sue Culupa’s second graders at Christ the King School in Burlington have been studying interdependence and the significance of community, especially in how we get the food we need to survive. The class journeyed to Shelburne Farms where they explored how important farms are to our community and the world. Students collaborated to make a pizza from scratch, including harvesting fresh vegetables for sauce and toppings, grinding wheat berries to make flour, and milking a cow for cheese. They had a blast and, in the process, learned how important farms are to our economy and how much work goes into the food we enjoy.
