Many pupils are passionate about the welfare of animals though, if surveys are to be believed, many of them do not know how their bacon, eggs and milk are produced!
Food production is a growing topic of debate whether you are talking about the ethics of how we treat animals, how we produce healthy food, and how we can feed a growing population.
Finding time to discuss topics such as animal welfare and sustainable food production is doubly valuable – it gives pupils an important understanding of a range of ethical and environmental factors and it encourages great debates!
To help you to engage your pupils in such discussions we provide a free speaker service and a pack of resources including a film and discussion activities which can be adapted for pupils of different ages, abilities, and levels of confidence.
To enquire about a speaker or to order a free resource pack, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with “Geography mailshot” in the subject title.
To view or download the resources directly, including films, please go to our Geography webpage.

PS We’ve had some wonderful evaluations from teachers for our talks and resources:
“We have really ‘enjoyed’ using your pack. It stirred up a huge amount of interest and discussion”
“Thanks for inspiring and IMPORTANT material – which is very difficult to come by.”
