Sausage tree

A short discussion topic, suitable for upper KS2, linking with the topics plants and living things and habitats. The dangling fruits of the Kigelia tree, nicknamed the sausage tree, can grow up to a metre long. The sausage tree grows along rivers and streams and on floodplains in central and southern Africa.

This ten-minute activity, linking to speaking and listening, is ideal for use at the beginning of the day or during transition times, such as after lunch. Pupils will be challenged to guess what the image is by answering the questions shown on the first slide of the PowerPoint. This could be done on the whiteboard or through discussion with a partner. Once pupils have finished, click through to the next slide to reveal the answers. This discussion topic is also suitable for year 4, year 5, year 6, P5, P6 and P7.
