Different systems and senses work together in humans, and we are responsible for making balanced choices in order to have a healthy lifestyle. The development of global perspectives is supported through understanding our place in the world in relation to others. We develop awareness of and appreciation for the fact that we all express our creativity and emotions in different ways. Many foods need to be processed and/or transported before they reach our tables. Personal, family and community history is a source of information about the people and places. People can establish practices in order to sustain and maintain the Earth’s resources. Case study – water.
