Fruit Shopping With Clues

This short game fromFresh For Kids encourages children to identify fruits from a series of written clues.

The clues will need reading out to younger children, they include clues such as "This fruit is yellow in colour and curved in shape".

The player then has to use arrow keys to scroll around and find the correct fruit on the shelf and then click to pick up the requested number of fruits for the shopping list.

There is only one version of this game, that is, if you play it twice you will get the same questions, so it is a one off game, but quite good for getting children to think about the descriptions of fruits.

You can find the game

Square Foot Gardening


Square Foot Gardening Guide Square Foot gardening is a system which was developed by an American engineer called Mel Bartholomew, and it is a great way to fit lots of vegetables into a small space. It is also great for schools because it makes it much easier to build maths and English activities into the garden.
