This practical topic will teach pupils about the growth cycle of a plant and some of the different plants grown for food in Africa. Pupils will learn first hand about the importance of growing conditions by planting salad rocket. They will share or sell the rocket leaves, design and make seed packets and collect seeds for drying.
