Feed the World lead educator Heather Bryan recently visited OSU Mansfield associate professor of education Donna Farland-Smith’s classroom. Bryan shared Feed the World’s resources with pre-service teachers.
The group also worked through the Feeding the World lesson. This lesson analyzes population growth and engages students in a simulation using subsistence farming, a labor-intensive method of farming used by the majority of farmers in the developing world to feed their families. Students will collect data to analyze, then use that data to suggest ways to improve this method of farming.
