Dear Division 16,
You may have seen the book, “Hungry Planet” in the stack of books we looked at last week for our project research. It’s a project where a photographer, Peter Menzel, went around the world to take photographs of families with the amount and type of food they would eat in a typical week. He asked them what their favourite meals were and how much money they spent on food in a typical week.
The photographs are very interesting to compare. Please read the article here:
and review each of the 28 pictures, which you can do by clicking the arrows at the bottom right hand side of the photographs.
In your post this week, please respond to the photographs by answering one of the following questions:
- What factors do you think might explain the diversity of food among the different pictures? Explain and give examples
- What are some inferences you might draw about the transportation of food around the world? For this, you may need to consider this post and the information from January 5th assignment.
I look forward to your responses,
