Biomes that produce our food, industrial materials and fibre

Biomes that produce our food, industrial materials and fibre

This unit consists of a pdf resource and two supporting videos. It has five inquiry teaching sequences about exploring biomes in Australia and overseas that produces some of the foods and plant material people consume. The unit encourages students to investigate how humans have altered biomes to produce food, industrial materials and fibres, and the environmental effects of these alterations. The unit also explores the environmental, economic and technological factors that influence crop yields in Australia and across the world and the challenges there are to food, industrial materials and fibre production.
