Exploring Food Energy with Help from the Pilgrims

Leslie Reinherz, a teacher at Canton High School, had a big question: How does human food intake and output fit into the larger framework of our ecosystem? She set about exploring that question near the site of America’s first settlers, Plimoth Plantation in Plymouth Mass. Contrasting modern day Thanksgiving food staples with the feast of the first Thanksgiving, Reinherz fits this important question into the framework of a familiar and beloved American tradition. Find out what she dicscovers on the MIT Blossom’s website: http://blossoms.mit.edu/videos/files/videos/ecological_cost_dinner_english_flash
