more for the unit plan

So we have to write a unit has to have an essential question, a unit question and content brain keeps spinning on it and this is this morning's brainpower.

EQ: Why do we eat what we do?

GQ: Where does our fruit come from?

CQ: What Spanish speaking countries produce and export fruit to the US?
What is the cycle from seed to your table?
What is the historical context of this type of trade?

I am so weird...having grown up on a farm and now speaking Spanish, this food thing is really high on my list of essential things I can guide kids to know more about....the Spanish tie-in has a lot to do with my experience touring farms in the Dominican Republic and Venezuela. I see so much potential for kids = "Wow that is what a pineapple plant looks like!"
