|Scooped by Carla Frohloff|
Here we have a resource by TES Connect, an organisation that allows education professionals to share and benefit from each other’s resources and lesson plans in order to drive excellence in the education sector. This website provides teaching resources for every subject area, with the above link taking you straight to resources that can be used to link the Australian Curriculum: Technologies with Health and Physical Education (HPE).
For example, at the above website there are links to different topics, including healthy and safety. If you click on this topic, you are provided with health and hygiene worksheets, food safety puzzles and films, safety tasks and much more. Evidently, these resources could be used to teach the Year 5 and 6 Design and Technologies content descriptor "Investigate the important of food safety and hygiene" as well as the Year 5 and 6 Personal, Social, and Community Health content descriptor which states "Plan and practise strategies to promote health, safety and wellbeing" (ACARA, 2013, p.3; ACARA, 2014, p.3).
In my opinion, the above website would be great to access to teach the above content descriptors as well as many more from the Technologies curriculum and HPE curriculum. The teaching resources that it provides are great as they address a variety of topics as well as come in different forms (videos, worksheets, online games etc.). I highly recommend that you take a look at this site and would be interested to hear what you think.
What might you use the above website to teach?
