In Trending Now, students analyze trends that focus on eating local, using organic food products and caring for the environment. They compare these trends to sustainable agricultural practices, using dairy farming as a starting point. Project activities are sequenced to have students:

  • Spark Curiosity and Inquiry
  • Search and Investigate
  • Design and Create
  • Publish and Share

Customized learning is facilitated with fillable text fields and checkboxes that allow you and your students to save and complete activities and assessments.
