Please click on the link and reference the photos below to read the lesson I created for the kids to understand just exactly what it takes to Trace their Turkey from Farm to Fork!
Each student got to act out a part, call various truckers and watch as their “operation- thanksgiving” came to life.
We counted at least 4 trucks, hundreds of miles, 8 different business operations including incubation, packing plants, cold storage and 2 farms. There are dozens of people involved and loads of energy=carbon used to power it all. Although your Thanksgiving provides hundreds of jobs from skilled scientists to truckers, farmers and teenage checkers/baggar’s, it takes a LOT OF ENERGY.
Needless to say, LET”S ALL take time to be aware and GIVE THANKS!
Cheers to you and Happy Holidays,
