This article outlined to me if your students are not interacting or are disengaged in the topic than it may be time to reassess your teaching styles and methodologies on how you deliver your lessons. It also heightens the message that students are individual and we need to cater for all learning types.
It is amazing what happens when you allow students to have control of the classroom.
The classroom is their environment for approximately six hours a day, five days a week, so why not mix up the learning and teaching methodologies to keep the students learning fun and interactive.
ACARA places emphasis on the understanding the importance of social support and a sense of belonging in promoting mental health and wellbeing

Paddock to plate creates opportunities for students to gain an understanding of growing crops and farming animals, with the idea of how the food is produced and sold in shops.
The site has informative video clips to explore the process involved with growing, harvesting and transporting food. This is a really resourceful site for both teachers and students due to the cross curriculum opportunities that are available. Initially you could use the site for science lessons however you could use it for mathematics, English and technology.
Below is an example of using this for Math in year 2 in align with ACARA:
Paddock to paper:
students fold an A4 paper in half,
than fold it again in half and
once more in half;
The paper will resembles 8 equal sections,
Draw fence lines on the creases so it resembles 8 small paddocks (remember to outline the importance that the small paddocks are 1/8 of a paddock etc.)
The students can than design their paddock to suit growing crops and farming animals.
By using a whole piece of paper and having the students fold it into eighths is providing concrete materials to assist with grasping fractions.
EngQuest is a website that focuses on powering up both the teachers and students imagination. Students are required to use higher order thinking as they construct, analyze and critique projects and their outcomes.
Having the option to utilize an interactive white board in the classroom provides opportunities for collaborative learning as a whole class within a classroom context. Statistics are quite impressive as teachers revealed over 90% of their students are achieving curriculum outcomes in Maths, Science and technology since using EngQuest.
The Australian Government has designed this website to create opportunities for primary school students to interact with activities and online games to raise awareness for cyber safety.
