Description:

Farming and Countryside Education (FACE) is a British not-for-profit organization whose website states that it is concerned about the "way children, young people, and their families, have become disassociated from where their food comes from." Through farm visits, research, and curriculum support, FACE's "aim is to educate children and young people about food and farming in a sustainable countryside." The "Resources" section of the FACE website has a lot to offer visitors of every age, profession, and education level. There are the printable "3D Model Farm Animals" and the "Tractor Puzzles" for young kids. Adult visitors will enjoy the thought-provoking BBC News article entitled "Farming Life: A Family Tradition", about the views of a family of farmers. Educators will find that the "Farm Behind the Food" online resource is packed with 50 classroom activities created by educators. These classroom activities address such issues as understanding food labels and children making choices about what they eat.
