Be choosy about your food!

Think Global primary assembly kit

KS1: ages 5-7KS2: ages 7-11PDFPowerpoint

The focus of this assembly is food choices, using a story from South Africa. Starting with a choice that children make every day (ie: what to have for breakfast), and using the story One Child One Seed, the assembly explores what influences our choices and those of others, and how our choices have an effect on ourselves, our school, our community and the wider world.

The kit is made up of a PDF of teachers’ notes, plus a set of PowerPoint slides which can be used as it is or adapted according to the needs of the teacher and pupils. There are lots of ideas to explore; potentially enough for a whole week of assemblies, focusing on different issues connected with food each day.

This is the first in a series of Think Global primary assembly kits and is available as a free sample. To download from the links below, please Login or Register (free).

Three others are available, price £7.50 each or £20 for all three: Respecting Rights, which looks at the issue of human rights, Waste Not, Want Not, exploring the topic of waste, and Connection Detectives, which explores our global connections.
