The One with the Little Carrot Dude

How did carrots become orange?

From corn to kohlrabi, beans to broccolini, in this episode, students discover how modern and ancient farmers have bred vegetables over thousands of years for size, colour, nutrition and flavour. They explore how food words from all over the world have become commonplace in English. This is also a great springboard for discussions around bullying, empathy and resilience, as Lily discovers that it’s the grit on the inside that counts.
