1 Welcome to... What Fruit or Vegetable Am I?

2 This presentation contains a set of four statements designed to narrow down the identity of a mystery fruit or vegetable. You will need to rely on your scientific knowledge to identify the fruit or vegetable. Please don’t run. By using your scientific knowledge you should arrive at the correct final table and earn the undying admiration of your teacher. Each statement is designed to eliminate one fruit or vegetable. If you are standing at a particular fruit or vegetable when it is eliminated you are out of the game and must sit down. You will see that on the tables in the classroom there are fruit and vegetable names written on pieces of card. After each statement you must go to one of the cards you think could be the mystery fruit or vegetable.

3 Statement 1 The mystery fruit or vegetable is roughly round in shape.

4 Carrots aren’t round – so bad luck if you were standing next to the carrot table. Statement 1 The mystery fruit or vegetable is roughly round in shape.

5 The mystery fruit or vegetable is solid, it is not made up from leaves. Statement 2

6 Cabbages maybe delicious, but unfortunately they are made up from lots of closely folded leaves – so please take a seat if you were standing next to the cabbage table. The mystery fruit or vegetable is solid, it is not made up from leaves. Statement 2

7 The mystery fruit or vegetable contains lots of pips. Statement 3

8 Oh dear, plums don’t contain lots of pips – they just have one big stone inside. Please take a seat if you were standing at the plum table. The mystery fruit or vegetable contains lots of pips. Statement 3

9 Statement 4 The mystery organism has juicy purple coloured flesh.

10 Do apples have juicy purple coloured flesh? I don’t think so! Better luck next time if you picked apples. Congratulations if you are standing at the pomegranate table. The mystery fruit or vegetable is indeed the pomegranate, which is a fruit. Statement 4 The mystery organism has juicy purple coloured flesh.

11 The End

12 What Fruit or Vegetable Am I? Teachers Notes This presentation contains a sequence of four statements designed to narrow down the identity of a mystery fruit or vegetable. Children will need to use a process of elimination to identify the fruit or vegetable. Prior to the lesson make sure that the room is free of trip hazards. Arrange tables so that there are 5 ‘islands’. Each island needs to have a large card with the name of one of the fruits or vegetables on it. The fruits and vegetables to use are: carrot, plum, apple, pomegranate and cabbage. Each statement eliminates one of the fruits or vegetables. When each new question appears, children can move to the table they think holds the correct fruit or vegetable. Children standing at a particular fruit or vegetable when it is eliminated are out of the game and must sit down. By responding correctly to each statement they should arrive at the correct final table. It will be useful to have examples of the fruit and vegetables used in this activity to show children at the end of the activity. It is not recommended that they see these examples prior to the activity as this may make the solution too easy. Pomegranate has been chosen as the solution fruit as it is likely that the majority of children will not be familiar with this and this will add to their learning experience. If you are concerned about food miles or cannot find any pomegranates, this presentation is fully editable so please feel free to amend it as required. Ensure that students do not run.
