Make a chart on where food comes from. Using corn as an example: Show the seed, how it is grown, how it is harvested, how it is brought to a production plant or delivered to storage or a food distribution center, bought at a market, and then prepared in different ways at home! Use props like seeds, drawings or real cornstalks, and fresh, canned, or frozen corn and discuss the various ways corn can be.
