Where Would We be Without Seeds
Where Would We Be Without Seeds (WWWBWS) is a six-lesson curriculum that focuses on foods grown from seeds, plant life cycles, and the local agriculture industry. This interactive program helps students understand the fundamentals of the farming process by focusing on answering four essential questions:
- Why is agriculture in Hawaiʻi important?
- Where does our food come from?
- How do plants go through life cycles?
- Why are seeds important?
The WWWBWS curriculum is aligned with the Hawaii Content and Performance Standards, Common Core Standards and Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) for grade 2 students, but can easily be adapted for any student in grades K-3.
