Video Lunchbox Legends - the people behind your lunch (Animation)

TLF ID M019331

This is a video about the various occupations involved in developing and producing the food used in a ham and salad lunch roll. The video is presented by Will, a primary-school-aged boy, who identifies and describes nine occupations in several broad groups including researchers, growers of plant food; producers of animal products; and transport professionals. Will's commentary includes jokes, riddles and hyperbolic vocabulary, as well as questions and comments directly addressed to the viewer. It is supported by animated illustrations. The video lasts for 4:41min and ends with Will suggesting viewers might like to take up one of the occupations and become 'a legend in your own lunchbox'.

Educational details

Educational value
  • Intended for mid to upper primary school students, this engaging video highlights the importance of professionals in the Agriculture, Science, butchery and transport occupations in providing our food and is of significant value for the content description in the years 3/4 Design and Technologies curriculum that refers to the role of people in design and technologies occupations. Recognising that many primary students identify supermarkets and occupations directly associated with them as the major sources of their food, the young commentator explains how people working in, for example, laboratories and market gardens develop, grow, process and transport the ham and salad for the lunch roll.
  • The resource has additional value as a stimulating introduction to other content descriptions in the design and technologies curriculum that refer to investigating food production in modern societies in year 3/4 and how and why food is produced in managed environments in years 5/6.
