Where Does Your Food Come From


Have a discussion regarding where a burrito comes from. There is no such thing as a burrito plant but as you talk, your children will discover that many of the ingredients do come from plants. List out each of the ingredients and have them circle each of the plants. For example:

  • tortilla shell
    • flour – wheat
    • oil – olive/soybean/grapeseed
  • beans
  • lettuce
  • tomatoes
  • olives
  • sour cream – milk – cow- grass, hay, grain
  • guacamole
    • avocados
    • limes
