Teacher's Explanation

This game emphasises that food is seasonal and although we can buy many foods all year in supermarkets this was not always possible. It is better for the environment if we buy food in season and where possible from our own country. Points of interest Blackberries grow in the wild very easily, brussel sprout are eaten at Christmas because they are one of the vegetables that grow in the winter. Some foods grow all year round such as mushrooms and different types of cabbage and some can be stored so we can eat them out of season such as carrots and apples.
