This book presents very interesting and unique information about food - where it comes from, cultural history, how it affects your body, and much more. I can’t wait to try the lesson on preserving egg yolks and also the homemade ice cream!
The next part of the lesson includes a hands-on activity. Some of the activities are simple, but most have a complexity that is best suited for an older child. Many activities can be finished in a 24-hour period, but some take much longer. Most of the activities require planning ahead and purchasing supplies. Unfortunately, there is no master list of supplies needed for the activities. A few examples of the activities: grow a watermelon vine, compare jasmine rice and sticky rice, oven-dried fruit, preserving egg yolks with salt, turning milk into cheese.
The final part of the lesson is to create a farm journal entry. With multiple questions to respond to, this could be considered part of handwriting or creative writing.
Between the need to purchase supplies, the complexity of some activities, the lesson portion, and the journaling, it would likely take us a week’s worth of homeschool days to complete one lesson. Looking through Food Anatomy: Activities for Kids by Amber Stott, I think it is best suited as a family activity book to do over an extended period such as summer break or a homeschool situation.
