Plate To Planet Curriculum
Beyond Benign in partnership with Impossible Foods has developed an open-access curriculum for elementary school teachers.
How will we sustainably feed an estimated 9 billion people, by the time you reach adulthood (2030)?
The new Plate to Planet curriculum sparks student interest by investigating biodiversity, food as science and science as a tool for solving sustainability challenges. This curriculum, which includes detailed connections to NGSS life and physical sciences and cross cutting concepts, teaches students in grades 3-5 how food production and food decisions impact our environment. By diving deeper into real-world science innovations and hands-on labs, students experience first hand how science can solve sustainability challenges and ways they take action.
Disciplinary Core Ideas:
- Chemical Reactions
- Ecosystems Interactions, Energy, and Dynamics
- Structures and Properties of Matter

"Students are very interested in how our food impacts our environment, and they want to make choices that are healthy for our world. These lessons have inspired my students to think about the food they eat and make different choices that impact our planet."
