This unit consists of a pdf resource and two supporting videos. It has five inquiry teaching sequences about food and fibre production in the past. It includes sections on different meanings of the terms associated with food and fibre production; Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples’ ways of living with country; food and fibre produced by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples; Early European people’s ways of producing food and fibre; interconnections between peoples and places used to source and access food and fibre; and ways some food and fibre are produced in places today.
We need your feedback. When you have completed this unit please tell us what you think via the online survey external link. We will regularly update the units and your feedback will help PIEFA keep the resources current and relevant to teachers.
