‘From Little Things Big Things Grow’


Your task is to be a scientist and discover how the plants that we eat grow and develop.

Like all scientists you will do some ‘fieldwork’ to observe, note and find out how real plants grow. Our school gardens will be your laboratory.

At the same time, you will be working with other scientists via the internet to develop your ideas and knowledge about where the food we eat comes from and how it grows.

After you have completed this learning journey you will be a scientific expert on:

  • seeds
  • edible plants
  • the structure and function of plants
  • the life-cycle of flowering plants
  • what plants require to grow.

You will have the knowledge to grow a school that tastes good and be able to share your learning journey with the school community and other school garden scientists.
