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.
