As part of our Food and Farming topic, Primary 3 have been out exploring the supermarket store Tesco at Dalkeith. First we met Claire our guide and in the staffroom we put on our tabbards so we could be seen in the store. In the fruit and vegetable section we did the Rainbow Challenge, finding fruits and vegetables from all the colours of the rainbow. We slooked at packaging to find which countries the foods came from. We found ginger from China, chillies from Kenya, green beans from Tanzania and tomotoes from Poland. We learned about how bread and cheese were made and we were amazed that it took 10 litres of milk to make one block of cheese! After that we went into the storeroom to see where the trucks deliver the cages of food and we even went inside the deep freeze where it was -22 degrees! Back at the staffroom we all tried different breads, cheese and fruits and chose out favourites. It was a very interesting trip!
