This Geography lesson plan from the Eden Project invites Key Stage 3 students (ages 11 to 14) to understand the links they have with the natural world, and to present their work creatively using video. The Eden Project is all about connecting people with the natural world; the plant collection includes plants for food, medicine and materials. This lesson is designed to help students to appreciate the links they have with the natural world through everyday objects and then to present their understanding creatively as a TV report, potentially using video.
- investigate a particular plant to find out the products we get from it, and how.
- develop an awareness of the value plants have to us.
- work together to create a film/report to educate their peers.
