Learning in Depth
Farm to Fork
Spring is quite a short term so we haven’t had that much time to complete our LID projects with a link to our ‘Farm to Fork’ topic. Over the next 2 weeks, we would like you to complete at least 1 piece of work to add to the Farm to Fork’ section of your LID folder. Below are some ideas, but you might have an idea of your own, and of course what you do depends on your LID area.
Try to choose an idea that you haven’t explored yet. Then, why not email it to us if it is a computer-based piece or take a photo of what you do and email it to us or attach it to our Google Classroom stream? We’re looking forward to seeing what you create!
