Small gardens, ideal for small hands
Bag Gardens are a type of African garden that Send a Cow teaches families how to make in Africa. They are also a great way to get your pupils involved in a growing project, learning about healthy eating and life in an African country - with plenty of related resources and images to help you. These mini-gardens make the most of soil, compost and waste water, are easy to weed and can be grown in schools.

Make a tasty soup... learn about food and harvest
This practical lesson will help pupils to think about harvest in the UK and African countries through making a tasty soup and looking at the ingredients in a sorting activity. Through talking around the themes of this lesson it is possible to highlight the work of charities in helping African families to have better harvests each year. The harvests that we often take for granted in the UK can literally be life-changing for many African families who grow most of the food that they eat.
How a cow changed a family forever
Using Theresa and Kobwemi’s story, this assembly highlights the huge difference a cow can make to a family - from the amount of milk produced and the increase in vegetables. The theme of the assembly incorporates the importance of healthy eating and drinking milk for children in the UK and links in well with QCA Unit 3A - Teeth and eating.
Growing beansprouts in your classroom
A speedy way to introduce plants and growing things to your class - get them growing healthy bean sprouts! These lessons take you right through the process from measuring to germination to eating! The activities include the scientific recording of results and are a good link to Bag Gardens, healthy eating and harvest topics.
Healthy eating lessons from Africa
These two lessons fulfill the curriculum requirement to teach about food groups through reference to the story of a four year old boy from Lesotho called Mpho. They are part global Citizenship and part Science and encourage children to think about healthy eating and specifically the goal of eating five portions of fruit and vegetables a day - fitting into QCA - Teeth and eating and other areas in Science. For more information for Welsh schools wanting to partner with a Lesothan school, visit the Dolen Cymru website.
Food shapes with healthy eating facts
