LiFE Curriculum Series

LiFE Curriculum Series

The Science Education and Nutrition Education programs at Teachers College Columbia University collaborated to develop LiFE - Linking Food & the Environment Curriculum Series - a research-based science and nutrition curriculum. The LiFE Curriculum Series addresses both a major science education goal to promote scientific literacy for all Americans and major national health goals for people to eat healthful diets and lead physically active lives. LiFE uses the study of food and food systems to address national science standards in the areas of science as inquiry; life sciences; and unifying concepts such as understanding systems as interacting parts and understanding the flow of energy and matter through systems.
