VIRTUAL PICNIC-KG-A: 26TH OCTOBER
Expedition is a process of exploration with a specific focus through which the children get a chance to discover new aspects of a topic through self-led investigation. The students of KG went on a journey to investigate the origins, importance, and diversity of food as well as how food is inextricably linked to our social and emotional lives. From talking about our favourite foods, to finding out what ingredients go into them, organizing those ingredients into five food groups, and then learning about the sources and origins of those ingredients, we retraced the journey of food backwards from the fork to the farm. Then, we set out to discover how varied food is across our country and the world. The expedition culminated in an exploration of our own food heritage as we hosted a virtual picnic where the children included a food itm from theeir state as well as a food item they have never tried in their baskets. As we read stories, shared a laugh while saying tongue twisters, and went on a challenging scavenger hunt, we also shared our cultures with each other by introducing everyone to foods from our states. Trying new things together brought us closer as we all ended the expedition with a resolution to keep an open mind towards new foods.
