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.

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.

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.

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.

Beast from the East. Snow day work on Weather & Disruption

Beast from the East. Snow day work on Weather & Disruption

The video can be used by students from KS2 to KS5. It is Geography focused but can be used for critical thinking (for the second task option). The video asks the questions of how have we ended up with so much snow and also about who is affected. For the latter question students are asked to give an analysis as to the impacts. This can be an open-ended task for home/snow work or as a class task with more guidance from the teacher. Tasks: Choose ONE or BOTH questions to investigate and present your findings. How has this weather occurred? Use diagrams and chains of reasoning. (Note the plurals!) What are the consequences of the weather for the people of Britain. Again use chains of reasoning in your analysis. The cold weather seems to have affected the microphone. Apologies for the sound quality in places. #BeastFromTheEast

MEKONG DELTA SERIES - PART 2  LAND USES AND SURVIVAL

MEKONG DELTA SERIES - PART 2 LAND USES AND SURVIVAL

The Mekong delta ranks second in the list of the area of world deltas. The scaled map on the title page provides an opportunity for students to recognise the area (almost 100,000 square kilometres. This unit has a focus on the major land uses which are the basis for the survival of just over 18 million people. The main activity is growing the staple crop of rice. This is carried out by thousands of farming families on small areas. Rice is marketed within the delta but Vietnam is a major exporter of rice. Rice is milled within the delta and moved out of the delta via road to Ho Chi Minh City or by ship from the delta distributaries to overseas markets. Linked with the two large delta urban areas (My Tho over 800,000 population and Can Tho 1.4 million population) are market gardening areas producing a range of fruit and vegetables. These larger urban centres ara also areas of light industry.Vietnam also exports quantities of fish caught in the fresh waters of the distributaries or in the brackish waters of the mangrove swamps. Of particular significance is the raising of shriimp either in the water cannals and ponds of the rice fields or in the saline waters among the mangroves. The attachment is provided to promote class discussion. It could be handed out as a worksheet. This unit can standalone but it is also part of a series which, when completed, will give a broader understanding of this significant area.

THE CASE OF FARMER PHY'S DISAPPEARING SAND  ISLAND - MEKONG RIVER - CAMBODIA

THE CASE OF FARMER PHY'S DISAPPEARING SAND ISLAND - MEKONG RIVER - CAMBODIA

Rivers erode, transport load and deposit material. This is a study of a situation which illustrates the interrelationship between the Mekong River and the need for human adaptation the changing situations. To make the situation clearer this unit has a focus one one small sand island about 100 kilometres north of Phnom Penh - the Cambodian capital. Annual flooding from the Mekong River is embedded in the farming calendar and under normal flood levels farmers look forward to the time when flood waters cover some of their land. It brings the gift of added soil nutrients in the layers of sand and silt left on their land as the waters recede. However, for reasons explained, 2006 and 2011 brought more intense floods. The local farmers were given flood warnings as the Mekong floods entered the sand island areas. Many were evacuated and despite warnings there were casualties and significant damage. Join farmer Phy as he travels back to his sand island 6 years after the 2011 and see via maps what 2011 did to his sand island and his way of life. The attachment maps and the fill-in activity page are provided. Your students may well enjoy the journey to the island - but hopefully they will gain some understanding of farmer Phy's disappointment.

SAND ISLANDS OF THE MEKONG RIVER CAMBODIA

SAND ISLANDS OF THE MEKONG RIVER CAMBODIA

This is a study about sand - great quantities of sand supplied by the Mekong River and deposited within its wide reaches. It is about sand transportation, arrival, deposition and removal. The sand, with its high nutrient composition is regarded by Cambodian farmers as "the gift of the Mekong". Beyond the geomorphology of this sand is the way it affects the way of life of the Cambodians of the sand islands. The annual gift is usually manageable but in 2011 the Mekong flood levels were extremely high. Many from the sand islands were evacuated to higher/safer grounds. Even so, 2011 was considered to be a "disastrous year for many from the sand islands. Loss of life and considerable destruction of low-lying areas made this a year when the gifts of the river became overwhelming -particularly on sand islands that were severely flooded. To make this easier to understand you might consider linking this unit with one entitled "The Case of Chey Phy's disappearing island". Use the photographs to gain ideas about the way of life on the sand islands. "Step onto the islands" but have a care when near the sandy banks of the Mekong River because they are prone to collapse.
