This teacher resource makes engagement easy, and the experiments and activities are based on current food security, sustainability and photosynthesis research. The unit contains eight lessons, two of which are optional and not required for biology understanding curriculum outcome achievement. The lessons include an inquiry based investigation, easy to set and see science displays, word games, practical activities and maths learning activities. The unit includes a worksheet to assist in implementing a modified version of the scientific method. Also included are researcher profiles to directly link your classroom to the research.
