Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Go Bananas! aims to meet the organisational demands of a busy, mixed-ability primary classrom. There are a range of activities and ideas for follow-up work suitable for whole-class, small group, and independent work. The pack provides up-to-date information on banana production and gives a detailed insight into the way in which foods grown overseas pass through many workers' hands and go through many stages and processes before they reach our supermarket shelves. Go Bananas! includes: A collection of 18 full-colour photographs illustrating the sequence of events in the journey of a banana from tree to table. A range of activities using the photographs to develop visual and print literacy. Ideas for further activities, with photocopiable worksheets. A wealth of background information, including photocopiable maps especially designed for this age-group. Full curriculum links.
