Growing orange-fleshed sweetpotato for a healthy diet: A supplementary learners’ resource book for upper primary schools

This learning resource about orange-fleshed sweetpotato for pupils in upper primary schools (primary levels 5–7) was designed to supplement the teaching of topics in the agriculture, integrated science and related curricula. It is not a pupil’s book in the real sense, but rather an innovative invitation by the teachers for the pupil to explore characteristics and health benefits of the orange-fleshed sweetpotato through the second-hand investigation. The concept and design incorporates current research about science education, reading and text comprehension at the upper primary school level. The book is conceived to help pupils in primary levels 5 to 7 to advance their understanding of key scientific and agricultural concepts and their ability to reason scientifically
