Go Bananas

Follow the journey of a banana from the Caribbean to the UK with these resources for ages 7–11

Help your learners to understand the origins - and impacts - of the food they eat with these detailed resources. 

The resource includes a photo gallery and captions which follow the journey of a banana from the Caribbean to the UK.  It gives a detailed example of how food grown overseas passes through many hands, stages and processes from planting to eating, and also highlights who makes money from the process.

There are ideas for lessons in Geography, Art, Music, English, Science and Literacy based around these resources.


Oxfam Youth Ambassadors

This resource is suitable for curriculum-based classroom learning but it has been written primarily for Oxfam's Youth Ambassador Groups. Youth Ambassadors meet in their own time (with the support of a teacher) to learn together about global issues, whilst developing the skills and the confidence to make their voices heard. If you are using this resource in an extra-curricular setting then we suggest you register as a Youth Ambassador Group. Registered groups gain access to our structured award scheme, badges and certificates, newsletters, all the latest resources and one-to-one support by phone and email.
