Seed to Store

Part of our social studies unit about community is learning about processors, distributors, buyers, sellers, consumers, producers, etc. As an end to this portion of the learning, groups of 3-4 students picked either a food that starts as a seed (apple, tomato, corn, bread--from wheat) or milk. They created a flowchart of how that item gets from its origin to the grocery store shelf. To demonstrate their learning I gave them a choice of paper & pencil, SimpleMind app, Educreations app, or SonicPic app. One group chose the paper & pencil method, 1 group chose Educreations, 1 group chose SonicPic, and 3 groups used SimpleMind.  All were apps they had used previously.Link to an Educreation
