This is a good activity for kids to complete independently.

- think and connect
Time required: 20 minutes

This activity is designed to stimulate children to think about the food on their table, where it comes from and how it gets from the farm to their table. Instead of using the picture in the first step, you might like to create your own spread at home.

[email protected] resources are designed for parents and teachers to use with children in the home environment. They can be used as stand-alone activities or built into existing curriculum-aligned learning programs. Our [email protected] series includes two types of resources. The first are fun and challenging real-world activities for all ages, the second are self-directed lessons for upper primary and secondary students. These lessons support independent learning in remote or school settings.
