Chips, crisps, waffles, hash browns, boiled, roasted, steamed – yes, potatoes are a versatile vegetable that many of us rely upon every day. Many of us take the humble potato for granted, gauging on its nutrition without giving a second thought – with many not even knowing where they come from, or how they are grown.
School grounds may not seem a good place to show students how potatoes are grown, as space is at a premium, and usually covered in concrete or tarmac, but this video by the “GrowVeg” YouTube channel shows how anyone with limited space can easily grow potatoes using pots or sturdy bags. A great activity to get students interested in growing their own food, with plenty of opportunities for writing, observations, and a real understanding where aspects of their daily food comes from.
