What would you grow?
Refers to page 19 in the booklet
This activity gives the children the opportunity to play the role of a farmer and make decisions about what they would grow to feed the children in their school.
A visit to a farm will always help children to understand farming at scale.
Perhaps you could then arrange to visit some local allotments so that the pupils can compare the two. What are the differences? (Quantity of produce/crops grown; size of plots/fields – economies of scale; labour required; use of machinery; commercial or personal use of produce etc.)
