An interdisciplinary approach to growing and tasting vegetables using
experiences and outcomes in the sciences, health and wellbeing,
numeracy and literacy.

Young learners love to be practical and this resource encourages them to grow plants from seed, fruit and vegetable scraps. The learners are encouraged to taste what they grow, where possible, and to discuss their taste preferences. The additional activities suggested include possible scientific investigations, planting up old wellies, growing hanging baskets with salad & herbs or planting bulbs for a present. Encouraging young learners to recognise common fruits and vegetables and consuming five portions of fruit and vegetables daily is included. The Education Scotland website has a series of very useful links about ‘The Way We Grow and Catch Food in Scotland’.

Suitable for Early Education under the Scottish CfE.
