Shaw, Edward L., Jr.; Baggett, Paige V.; Daughenbaugh, Lynda R.; Daughenbaugh, Richard L.; Santoli, Susan

The inspiration for this article was not conceived over lunch, but more specifically over the box in which the lunches were packaged. Five colleagues brainstormed ideas for teaching a unit on trees for the third grade that would fit in our boxes. The disciplines involved were art, children's literature, science, social studies, and technology. Each person decorated the lunch box for their appropriate discipline and placed instructional items inside. Technology was infused throughout the unit.
