Aimed at primary level, this resource provides a practical context to explore the requirements of plants for life and growth. Children are introduced to the ways in which local communities in Bangladesh successfully grow enough pumpkins for themselves and to sell to provide an income. This leads into an investigation in which children work scientifically setting up simple investigations, recording findings and observing the growth of seeds in sand and compost over time. This resource has been produced by the Association for Science Education in partnership with Practical Action as part of the Global Learning Programme.
