Guidance: this video contains footage of live animal birth and may not be suitable for all classes
To celebrate the harvest this year, your learners are invited on a quest to collect a host of ingredients, learn all about them and the people responsible for producing them and then design and make their own harvest flag pizzas.
If you have never joined a live lesson before, see the guidance hub, where you will find technical and educational support.
Read our ‘How to generate higher order questions’ guide and give the children some time to generate some questions about our expert panel, wheat, dairy products, animal welfare, horticulture, cheesemaking etc.
Student sheets are available for this lesson, click the links on the right hand side of this page to download.
1. Introduction (5 mins)
Josh will open the lesson with a brief introduction to the harvest pizza quest.
2. Subject knowledge, demonstration and activity (30 mins)
While Jennie takes us on a quest around the countryside to search for harvest flag pizza ingredients, the children complete the Student Sheet: Harvest Quest Quiz.
During her quest, Jennie will visit an arable farm, dairy farm and cheesemaker to meet the people involved in producing the ingredients and learn all about them. Meanwhile, Josh and Lucy, a food product development manager, will demonstrate how to make a harvest flag pizza from our kitchen studio.
Please note, we will be visiting a working dairy farm during calving time so if there is an opportunity to witness a cow giving birth, we will build that into our live lesson.
3. Q&A and conclusion (10 mins)
Our expert panel will answer some of the questions students have submitted.
Learners will be challenged to design their own harvest flag pizza and to research their chosen ingredients to discover how they are produced, where they come from and their nutritional benefits.
Learners can find out all about reversible and non-reversible reactions by making their own butter and using it to make dough balls to accompany your harvest flag pizzas, using the Student Sheet: Changes of State, Dough Balls
You could extend your harvest live project into a full Farming STEMterprise project by challenging your learners to set up their own businesses.
