Orange Juice--From the Tree to the Glass! Second Grade Activity. Schools of California Online Resources for Education (SCORE): Connecting California's Classrooms to the World.
Ricchiuti, Linda M.
The goal of this lesson plan is for second-grade students to understand the steps in how food is made and delivered to the grocery store. Students create a play where each person plays a part in the production and distribution of food. The lesson suggests that the class perform the play on parents' night. It provides five activities for students to complete. Each activity helps students learn about making orange juice and shipping it to the public. Activities in the lesson plan are: (1) "Geography of Oranges"; (2) "Juicing an Orange"; (3) "Orange Juice Factory"; (4) "Orange Juice Taste Test"; (5) "Transporting the Orange Juice"; and (6) "The Play." The lesson plan lists resources needed by the students; discusses the process; provides learning advice; explains evaluation criteria; offers a conclusion; and presents extension activities. The teacher notes section provides grade level/unit and lesson purpose; history/social science and language arts standards; suggests length of lesson; lists teacher materials needed; discusses interdisciplinary connections (language arts, science, mathematics, and performing arts); and adaptations for special needs students. Contains a glossary. (BT)
