Teacher Training | Kindergarten & Grade 1
Food Explorers relies on experiential learning and tasting, to help kindergarten and grade 1 students have fun exploring a variety of foods.
The Food Explorers teacher workshop helps you guide students through hands on food experiences that focus on the mysteries of tastes to concrete, first-hand experiences with food, focusing on the mysteries of tastes, textures and colours of food.
