Shelf Life Pack: Chelsea Physic Garden

Shelf Life Pack: Chelsea Physic Garden

https://www.chelseaphysicgarden.co.uk/teaching-resources Shelf Life The Shelf Life resource pack is a cross curricular resource for teachers of pupils at all ages. Shelf Life is a collection of plants growing in the packaging of foods, drinks, cosmetics and medicines. Examples include a tomato plant growing from a bottle of tomato ketchup, wheat from a bag of bread, an orange plant from a carton of orange juice or a willow sapling from an aspirin bottle. It is a reminder of our reliance upon nature and prompts you to ask the question: How many plants have I used today? 15 years ago, Shelf Life was devised by Chelsea Physic Garden’s Education Department to illustrate the diversity of the plant kingdom and also to make the link between our everyday products and their plant origins. Many of the younger visitors to Chelsea Physic Garden (around 2,500 per year) are very surprised – and often quite disgusted – that their meals may have come from plants. When they see tomatoes in a ketchup bottle, potatoes growing in a crisp packet and mint in a toothpaste tube, the message sinks in. Our Shelf Life Resource Pack includes: • Information about 22 plants in our everyday lives - with plant profiles and tips on how to grow them and create your very own display • Games to try out • Curriculum-linked ideas and activities (e.g. the history of slavery and the evolution of packaging) • An extensive bibliography of links and suggested reading We have split the pack into 5 volumes This resource aims to encourage schools to grow their own Shelf Life and provides information about how to do this. There is background information on some easily-sourced and commonly found plants (growing tips and profiles - including all sorts of facts - botany, history, geography, food and nutrition and links to art, music and literature) in Volumes1, 2 and 3. In Volume 4 there are suggestions of classroom based activities to link Shelf Life with the curriculum at every key stage. In Volume 5 are suggestions of classroom based games to link Shelf Life with the curriculum at every key stage. • Volume 1: Aloe to Citrus (PDF/9.5MB) • Volume 2: Cotton to Peanut (PDF/7.6MB) • Volume 3: Pineapple to Wheat (PDF/8.8MB) • Volume 4: Activities section (PDF/7MB) • Volume 5: Games section (PDF/5MB) We welcome your feedback on these.

Nursery Harvest Song

Nursery Harvest Song

A fun song written for a nursery class to perform at their harvest festival assembly. The children stamped their feet and played claves to accompany the song. The song provided a starting point for many other activities and would be a good resource for the whole of KS1.

Animal Jeopardy

Animal Jeopardy

Animal Jeopardy is a great way for your class to review your concepts and ideas about animals. The categories covered in this game are mammals, reptiles, amphibians,birds, fish, adaptations, food chains, and animal vocabulary. I typically put the class into small groups or individuals and ask a member of the group to choose a color and dollar amount. That is the question that they have to answer. When I get the class to do it individually I get them to put the answers down on a piece of paper and mark them at the end of the game. NEW! I have now introduced a visual point scoring system to keep track of how much money the teams have earned. Simply click on the allocated game board and with each click the amount increases by $100 I run it on an interactive whiteboard but would be equally successful on a projector, computer or TV screen. Alternatively it could be run for an individual student on their own device.

Have You Seen Frozen Peas Growing on Trees?

Have You Seen Frozen Peas Growing on Trees?

A fun harvest song written for a Year 1 class (but suitable for the whole of KS1) when the teacher wanted to explore the processed food angle in a Harvest Assembly. This fun and unusual harvest song explains how we can all enjoy the fruits of the harvest all the year round. The humorous nature of the lyrics and accompaniment fills the children with glee and the song could be the starting point for many related musical activities. Also available from my website.

Video: Learn how fish is processed

Video: Learn how fish is processed

Learn how fish is processed in this short video. This fish is going to be washed. Washing the fish will remove the slimy, slipperiness from the skin before it is prepared. The fish travels up the conveyor belt to the water. After it has been washed, it will be filleted. This fish is called plaice. Plaice is a type of flat fish. When fish is filleted, the parts that are good to eat are kept and the rest will be thrown away. These people are experts at filleting fish. Look how quickly they can work. They can fillet thousands of fish a day. Such a large number of fish are not needed all at once so some of the fish will be frozen. These people are putting the fillets of fish onto a large roller. The roller takes the fish into a big deep freezer. The fish is frozen solid very quickly. Now the fish is frozen, it can be kept like this for several weeks if necessary, until the factory needs it for the next process. It may also be sold like this, ready for someone to defrost and cook at home. These people are sorting out pieces of frozen haddock. The haddock is going to be coated in bread crumbs and then fried. First the haddock is coated with batter. Then it is covered in bread crumbs. Finally, the fish is cooked. The fish pieces are then frozen. All this fish is frozen solid. The fish is packed into bags and weighted to make sure customers get the right amount. The last stage is to pack the fish into boxes. The boxes are then taken away to be sealed and put in cartons. These are boxes of cod. Every box gets stamped with a best before date.

Video: Poultry farming - the broiler farm

Approximately 5 million chickens are farmed each week for restaurants, shops and supermarkets. The chickens live in large sheds. One day old chicks are placed onto the shed floor, on a bedding of wood shavings and straw. These chicks are free to move about in the sheds and have access to plenty of food and water. Fans bring fresh air into the poultry sheds. Many chicken sheds offer natural day light and perching bales. The chickens are grown to different weights from 1.75kg and 2.4kg taking between 33 and 41 days to grow. he farmer will work with a veterinarian to help look after the health of the chickens.

Poultry farming - the hatchery

Poultry farming - the hatchery

5 1/2 million chicks can be hatched each week at the Hatchery. On delivery, the eggs are moved into the hatchery egg room where they are stored at 18°C. The eggs are loaded into the setters where the chick inside the egg will be able to grow. The eggs are held at 37.5°C and regularly turned. The temperature around the eggs is closely monitored by computers. Eggs are removed from the setters 18 days later and transferred to the hatching trays. The hatching trays are put into an area called the hatchers for three days. After 21 days the chicks hatch out of their shells. The chicks are sorted by hand into different sizes and they are checked to ensure they are healthy. They are counted into chick boxes which are then taken through a spray cabinet where they are sprayed with medicine to protect the chicks from diseases. The chicks are then transported to farms where they will continue to grow.

Animal Classification – Sorting Activity and Worksheets

Animal Classification – Sorting Activity and Worksheets

This is a great whole class teaching activity while children work in groups to identify different groups of animals. Each and every group is given a full set of flash cards, key headings and features to sort out into vertebrates, invertebrates, mammals, reptiles, birds, fish, amphibians, crustaceans, molluscs, insects and minibeasts while cooperatively making decisions and discussing the different possibilities. You can provide each group with 4 x A3 sheets of paper (attached together) and glue sticks/ blu tack to create group posters in order to share and present findings with the rest of the class….a lot more discussions there! As follow up activities, I have created a number of charts to use key information/clues to identify animal groups as well as worksheets: **Vertebrates – mammals, birds, reptiles, fish, amphibians: ** • Chart: Answer the questions to identify each group of animals. Write the name of each group within the key. • Table: Recording animal features - tick or colour • Facts about mammals: Complete sentences using word bank – and label/name animals (pictures). • Facts about birds: Complete sentences using word bank – and name where (place) they mostly live. • Facts about fish: Complete sentences using word bank - and label body parts. • Facts about reptiles: Complete sentences using word bank – and illustrate skin type/pattern. • Facts about amphibians: Complete sentences using word bank - and label body parts. • Facts about sea mammals: Complete sentences using word bank - and label body parts. • Write the names of these animals (from list) in the correct group. **Invertebrates – molluscs, crustaceans, insects, minibeast : ** • Chart: Answer the questions to identify each group of animals. Write the name of each group within the key. • Challenge! Chart: Sort and group each question and animal groups. Place them in the correct order to complete the chart (cut and paste activity). • Facts about molluscs: Complete sentences using word bank - and label body parts. • Facts about crustaceans: Complete sentences using word bank - and label body parts. **Invertebrates – insects and minibeasts: ** • Chart: Answer the questions to identify each group of animals.

Farm Animal Memory (Match Picture to Picture with Name)

Farm Animal Memory (Match Picture to Picture with Name)

MORE THAN JUST A MEMORY GAME!! Though this was created as a memory game, its cards can be used for so many other fun and educational activities, games and study aides. Print these pages out double-sided. This will make the page containing a colorful design the cover, or top, of the cards. Laminate the printed sheets to make for more durable playing cards (printing with card stock can also help with durability). Cut the cards along the black line. Once cut, mix the cards up, lay them out, and take turns flipping cards over. Kids will be exercising their memory, learning, and having fun while doing so! :)

You are what you eat! Learn about healthy eating habits.

You are what you eat! Learn about healthy eating habits.

This beautifully illustrated book and the song that accompanies it were originally written for my ESL programme about agriculture & farming. The text serves as a great base for teaching kids about healthy eating habits, looking after ourselves and making choices that help our communities and our environment. A great base for any project which asks kids to reflect on what we eat and where it comes from. Illustrations by Maria Tarrago and design by Eva Morell.
