Why Pizza?

Pizza, arguably a favourite food of all students, typically represents all four food groups identified by Canada’s Food Guide to Healthy Eating and is an excellent topic for a comprehensive study of agriculture, nutrition, food processing, economics, mathematics, science, arts, and language – even careers.

Consider that a simple pizza crust is made from grain, cheese is a product of our dairy industry, and meats and vegetables contribute to the wide variety of exciting toppings. These products are produced and transformed through several interesting processes which students are invited to explore.

The program has four components, each representing a specific aspect of “pizza production”. Students will rotate through each of the following stations:

  1. Dairy                    
  2. Soils and Vegetables                
  3. Meats
  4. Grains or Field Crops
