Why Farming Matters

Fruity diaries

Refers to page 11 in the booklet

This activity would benefit from some initial research by the pupils into a fruit of their choice.  Try to have a wide range of fruits in the class. An interesting wall display might result.

Watch the video about strawberry farming.


If possible, arrange for pupils to visit a fruit farm, a farmers' market or greengrocer.
