Where Does My Food Come From?
These activities, from Practical Action, encourage children to think about where their food is produced. The interactive presentation shows children where some common foods are sourced.
There is also an activity using food labels to illustrate the source of foods. It could be used as a homework activity to illustrate where the food they have at home comes from. A simple spreadsheet allows children to choose the menu and calculate the food miles for a meal. Information cards can be used to promote a discussion about different food choices that children can make.
HEALTH and SAFETY
Any use of a resource that includes a practical activity must include a risk assessment. Please note that collections may contain ARCHIVE resources, which were developed at a much earlier date. Since that time there have been significant changes in the rules and guidance affecting laboratory practical work. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
