What is it?
Our innovative Zompping for Food and Planet curriculum is designed to be flexible and adaptable for educators, parents, and community organizers. The curriculum brings children on a journey around the world to learn about other cultures and people through food.
Using an interdisciplinary approach, Zompping for Food and Planet follows pre-K to 2nd grade national standards in:
- Cognitive Development: Math & Science
- Language Development & Communication
- Social Studies/Social Emotional Development
- Health & Physical Development
- Approaches to Learning: Creative Expression
Where to find it?
Zompping for Food and Planet was created to be delivered in multiple settings – from mobile classroom units, to moving schoolbus classrooms, to afterschool programs, to libraries, to traditional classrooms. We are currently working on systems to disseminate the curriculum to schools and educational programs. If you are a teacher, homeschool parent, community organizer, or anyone interested in finding a unique way to teach about the world while developing healthy eating knowledge and habits, please contact us.
In 2012, the Sol Food Mobile Farm is taking the curriculum on the road on their 6-month nationwide tour to help communities build gardens, learn about healthy eating, and discovering ways to create a more sustainable world.
The curriculum was first piloted in NC and DC. Please check out these events and testimonials:
