About this Skype lesson
ActionAid is working with Ashley School in Surrey, England to investigate some really big questions about food.
Our first lesson aims to give students an understanding of how food is grown. We will start by finding out how and why Ashley School are growing 26 varieties of potatoes!
Pupils will show you the potatoes they have grown, explain the different varieties and how they grew them. We’ll find out what they learnt in different lessons like geography and science and compare their experiences with those of children and their families who grow food in Africa.
In the meantime, you can access some great free resources from the ActionAid website:
