AP Environmental Science classes celebrate ‘UN Food Day’

At the beginning of school year, the AP Environmental Science students each choose a country. Over the course of the year, the students research their chosen country and use it as a focus for many of the concepts taught. The research focuses on environmental issues and conditions and other factors within the country that help give students a more global understanding of the concepts on the AP test. Additionally, the research helps students gain a better understanding of how the environment impacts everyday life in other countries.

The class is currently focused on a unit about food supply and yields. This unit also focuses on different types of farming and how it affects the food that we eat. With all of this emphasis on food, the class was assigned to bring in a traditional dish from their respective countries. The groups coined the day “United Nations Food Day.” Dishes included Swedish pancakes, Chinese rice, Indian flatbread and German pretzels.
