Emily Middleton's curator insight, May 21, 2013 11:37 PM

The ABC Splash website has hundreds of valuable teaching resources that are linked to the Australian Curriculum. For the purpose of this collection, I focus on the “From paddock to plate” unit. The theme of this resource is food and by engaging in the learning experiences, students discover how food is produced and explore the steps involved in harvesting, processing and transporting the food to their homes.

 

This resource is suitable for students in the early primary years, from foundation to year two. Although this unit has links to the Science key learning area, with a few modifications or additions to the learning experiences and assessment, the Technology curriculum and the cross-curriculum area of Sustainability could easily be supported.

 

The specific knowledge and understanding descriptors from the Design and Technologies subject of the DRAFT Australian Technology Curriculum (2013), that I consider most relevant are 2.1 and 2.3. The processes and production skills that I would most likely create learning and assessment experiences for are outlined in content descriptor 2.5.
