Food & Agriculture Field Study: GMOs

For the Unit VIII scholarly activity assignment, you should perform some research into genetically modified foods. Go to the local supermarket or the local health foods store and find foods that are genetically modified. What did you find? How do you know, as a consumer, if you are eating engineered foods? Was it clearly marked? Does it matter? Why is there a debate over these foods? Should there be laws governing the production and labeling of GMOs? Explain. 


Food and Geography

Introduction: For this project, you'll choose a food, such as pizza, or a cuisine, such as Italian cuisine, and then research how four geographic concepts are related to and affect your choice. Instead of presenting your research as a traditional paper, you'll use PowerPoint or similar presentation software to create an illustrated paper. Your presentation will be structured like a paper, including a title, introduction to the topic, main body, summary and conclusions, and references. Creative use of properly cited graphics and
