Help pupils learn about where their food comes from and different agricultural careers with Sam Wyman’s idea…
What better way to motivate a class than to discuss food? Everyone has a favourite meal or snack, after all.
But many children will have only the vaguest idea of how many people are involved in producing their favourite lunchtime treat.
This KS2 geography and DT lesson encourages pupils to ask questions about their food and its production – how it gets from field to fork – and will introduce them to some of the important people involved in the process, perfect for if you’re covering careers in KS2.
