Have you ever wondered about the origins of different foods? Choose a food and research where it came from.
With your child, choose a food to learn about, then go online or to the library to research its history. For example, potatoes came from Peru. The Inca Indians were the first to cultivate them in about 200 B.C. Potatoes were then brought to Europe by Spanish explorers and eventually made their way to North America.
