Exploring sustainable practices in food and fibre production

Exploring sustainable practices in food and fibre production

This unit consists of a pdf resource and two supporting videos. It has five inquiry teaching sequences about sustainable management practices in food and fibre production. The material models how students can use a group task to investigate a range of primary industries that produce food and fibre in Australia and the sustainable management practices they use to do so. The unit encourages students to use a range of digital texts and learning objects to investigate the technology and science contexts of five agricultural industries. In addition, the unit covers management practices used to ensure the growth and survival of crops, forests, fish, seafood and livestock on farm.

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.
