Where Does Our Food Come From?
To begin their topic ‘Where Does Our Food Come From?’ and ‘Materials’ teachers set up a table full of items that you would ordinarily see on a breakfast table. Pupils were challenged to look at all of the items and discuss which of them originate from plants. They were invited to retrieve items one by one explaining how they knew that the item was from a plant. The children were shocked to learn that absolutely everything on the breakfast table (including the newspaper and cotton tablecloth) all originate from plants!
