Jamie-Oliver-Jamies-Garden

Woolworths Online
Miss Coombes's insight:

This website includes lot's of information, games and fun ideas for children about healthy eating and growing healthy food. This website comes from 'Jamie-Oliver's Woolworth's gardening book'. This book and website include many different games including crosswords, creating a healthy plate, spot the difference in healthy foods, questions, gardening ideas and competitions. It also provides information about healthy eating and how to grow a healthy garden.

 

This could be a great resource for teachers to use in the classroom, when teaching 'food technology'. The teachers could choose the activities they believe will be more useful and engaging for their students, and as a class the teacher could work with the students to grow a healthy garden at school. The teacher could go through the healthy eating information with students out of the book. 

 

The ideas, information and fun activities in this book align with the requirements from the Australian Curriculum- Technologies draft. 

 

Here are the curriculum links:

 

Foundations to year 2:

-Explore how plants and animals are grown for food, clothing and shelter and how food is selected and prepared for healthy eating (ACTDEK003)

 

Year 3 and 4:

-Investigate food and fibre production and food technologies used in modern and traditional societies (ACTDEK012)

 

Year  5 and 6:

-Investigate how and why food and fibre are produced in managed environments(ACTDEK021)

 

-Investigate the role of food preparation in maintaining good health and the importance of food safety and hygiene (ACTDEK022)

 

I believe this book/ website would be useful for any primary aged student. The younger students would just need more teacher guidance. I believe the older primary students would still enjoy creating a healthy garden, watching it grow and learning about healthy eating.

It keeps your body running smoothly and can help prevent heart disease. Kidzworld checks out the fabulous facts of fiber.
Miss Coombes's insight:

This website could be used by teachers when teaching students about food fibre and healthy eating. It aligns with the Australian Curriculum- Technologies expectations. I would use it with year 3 and 4 students with the teacher reading along with them, and guiding them through the page, but with older students they could read the page on their own, take notes and report to the class about the important information they found. I would use it up to year 6. 

 

Here are the relevant curriculum strands that this website aligns with: 


Year 3 and 4: 

Investigate food and fibre production and food technologies used in modern and traditional societies (ACTDEK012)

 

Year 5 and 6:

-Investigate how and why food and fibre are produced in managed environments(ACTDEK021)

About Gardening 4 Kids - gardening supplies for children | Gardening 4 Kids | Design and Technologies: Food Technologies | Scoop.it
Gardening 4 Kids is the brainchild of Caroline Roberts. It is a one-stop shop for kids gardening products that encourage them to develop their natural wonder of gardening and the environment.
Miss Coombes's insight:

This is a wonderful resource for teachers, to shop for gardening products for students to use. Growing a garden at school is the best real-life experience children can get when learning about 'food technology' and how food is made. It also provides ideas about how to set up the garden. 

 

This relates to the Australian Curriculum- Technologies:

Foundation to year 2:

-Explore how plants and animals are grown for food, clothing and shelter and how food is selected and prepared for healthy eating (ACTDEK003)

A good feeling. Refreshing a Thirsty World (NEW FARMING TECH THAT KEEPS THE FOOD GROWING http://t.co/tOuY7HMGF2 #agriculture #business #technology)
Miss Coombes's insight:

This website could be used by teachers when teaching older students (year 5 or 6) about the was food is produced and managed to produce a particular type of food. This website discusses the way farming is managed to produce potatoes. 

As a future teacher I would teach the introduction of food technology and do work together as a class discussing food technology. This website could be one that they look at when learning about managed farming of foods. I would also provide the students with other examples and a livestock example as well, to ensure the students have a deep knowledge about the complexities of managing and controlling the environment grow our food, and to produce the best foods. 

This aligns with the Australian Curriculum:

Year 5 and 6:

-Investigate how and why food and fibre are produced in managed environments(ACTDEK021)

MLA - Meat & Livestock Australia

MLA - Meat & Livestock Australia | Design and Technologies: Food Technologies | Scoop.it
The cattle, sheep and goat industries plays an important role in Australia's economy, society and environmental management.

Via Andrea Taylor
Miss Coombes's insight:

Meat and Livestock Australia, is a wonderful resource that teachers could use in the classroom, to teach students about food production in Australia for beef, goat and sheep. The website aligns with the Australian Curriculum- Technology; year 3 and 4: “Investigate food and fibre production and food technologies used in modern and traditional societies (ACTDEK012)”, as well and 5 and 6: “Investigate how and why food and fibre are produced in managed environments (ACTDEK021)”. The website allows students to explore the meat production process by providing videos about farm procedures where the farmer talks about the processes, as well as providing information to read, called ‘fact sheets’. here is also an 'on the farm' game where students have to look after the animals, providing them with knowledge about what it takes to raise and grow the animal stock. It is an engaging way for students to explore the production of meat in Australia.

Andrea Taylor's curator insight, April 11, 2013 8:18 AM

The Meat and Livestock Australia website has a wide variety of information regarding food production within Australia which aligns with the food production strand from the Australian Technology curriculum for a number of year levels. MLA has created a free online video for teachers which demonstrate to students the production process on a beef and sheep farm across Australia. To compliment this free online video, MLA has developed additional guides to assist teachers with implementing this with the technology, science, and society and environment curriculum strands within the classroom. There is also additional fact sheets based upon the beef, sheep, and goat production. 

Sophie Edge's comment, May 27, 2013 3:40 AM
Hi Andrea, this site contains some excellent teaching resources and lesson suggestions. It is clear that this site would prove beneficial to teachers wishing to implement a unit on food production and technology. Thanks for sharing.
Sophie Edge's curator insight, May 27, 2013 3:42 AM

The Meat and Livestock Australia website contains some excellent and practical resources and teaching suggestions that would benefit teachers who wish to implement lessons on food production and technology. The resources provided on the site would be suitable for a range of year levels and ability levels.

Home - Food a fact of life | Design and Technologies: Food Technologies | Scoop.it
Miss Coombes's insight:

This website includes a variety of information about food that teachers could use in the classroom. The website was designed to support curriculum in the UK. It provides many ideas and resource for a variety of age groups ranging from three to 16 year olds. Some of the topics covered include: Healthy eating, cooking, where food comes from, farming and food processing.

 

I believe this website would be useful to help teachers find ideas and resources, to teach the Design and Technologies subject of the Australian Curriculum DRAFT. The website even provides lesson ideas and activities that could be used. This website will assist teachers to teach, especially the lower levels about food technology; where food comes from, how it is made, and what is healthy eating and how do we sustain enough food to supply people in Australia.

Free Printables - Health, Nutrition and Food Printable Worksheets
Miss Coombes's insight:

This is a great IXL website which includes fun games and activities for children from kindergarden to year 11 about healthy eating, nutrition, food safety, food groups, food production and much more. It includes online games printable worksheets, other activities and information for teachers. As a future teacher I would defiantly use some of these ideas, activities and games to engage students and to teach them about 'food technology'. 

 

It also aligns to the Australian Curriculum technologies:

Inspiring healthy eating. We provide community nutrition education, consultation and advisory...
Miss Coombes's insight:

This is a Facebook page I found which constantly adds posts about healthy eating and nutrition. The page could provide teachers with ideas to use in the classroom when teaching 'Food Technology''. The last post posted, was about a book called 'Jamie's garden' which is a Woolworth's collectable book designed for children to collect, grow, cook and share their foods. I believe this page would provide teachers with some great starting ideas and perhaps some information when planning and writing lessons to do with 'food technology'.

 

This links to the Australian Curriculum- Technologies:

Primary

Miss Coombes's insight:

This website is a wonderful resource for teachers, when teaching 'food technology' to students 5 to 11 years of age. Food forum is managed and directed by its founder, Ali Farrell, a trained home economist and teacher and a leading practitioner in food and technology education. The forum aims to provide teachers with ideas, support and information on teaching food technology to students. The site provides teachers with units, worksheets, curriculum information, powerpoints, project ideas etc. As a future teacher I believe this website would be great in providing me with lesson ideas and resources to teach food technology. It fits with the Australian Curriculum.


Foundation to year 2:

-Explore how plants and animals are grown for food, clothing and shelter and how food is selected and prepared for healthy eating (ACTDEK003)


Year 3 and 4:

-Investigate food and fibre production and food technologies used in modern and traditional societies (ACTDEK012)

Fresh from the World... Where Your Food Comes From - University of Illinois Extension

Miss Coombes's insight:

This is a great video older students (Grade 4 and 5) could watch and work through, to give them information about how food is transported from and to different countries. The video discusses a bit about the history of food. It explains how foods originated in certain places, but people took the foods overseas and grew them in their own countries. The students could gain a lot of knowledge from this video. The site includes a fun page for students and also and teachers page. The video links to the Australian Curriculum- Technologies: Draft, and would be useful for teachers to use in the classroom when teaching the food technologies side of the curriculum.

Talking Food Pyramid
Miss Coombes's insight:

This website could be useful for teachers to use in the classroom, to teach about healthy eating and different food groups. This activity can allow students, as a whole class or in groups on computers to explore the ‘food pyramid’. The food groups are explained by computer voice when the mouse is held over the different sections of the pyramid. This could be most useful for foundation to year 2 students, as it aligns with the Australian Curriculum strand- Food Technology for foundation to year 2. Foundation to year 2: “Explore how plants and animals are grown for food, clothing and shelter and how food is selected and prepared for healthy eating (ACTDEK003).”  This could be used after the students have looked at how food is made/where it comes from, to deepen their knowledge about food groups and to understand healthy eating.
