Youth Outreach Coordinator
HI – My name is Graham Bell. I have been an educator for the last 13 years, teaching at both primary and secondary levels in the UK and in international schools.
Following on from: "How'd that get on my Plate?", a creative writing assignment for 10 - 12 year olds.
How does a banana feel when it's picked and shipped half way around the world? What challenges does an orange face on its journey from where it was grown to your local supermarket?
Students will create an illustrated story or poem based on these journeys - and guess what? We would love to publish them on the site!
So get your students writing, let us know what you think of the activity, and submit stories and poems here...
And remember - if you have any suggestions on how to improve any of our activities, drop us a line - your ideas and feedback are very welcome.
