The aim was to produce a study projects with 10 year olds from our feeder primary school which would use a food product and be cross curricular. The product chosen was a potato and the presentation and slides give a report about the activities undertaken, i.e. planting and harvesting; the origin and types of potato; the commercial production of potato products; home-made versus commercial products; the creation of a potato dish for fast food outlet. By mapping the project against AT's it can be shown that food based activities lend themselves easily to work in various areas of the National Curriculum.
