Farms have distinctive features

Farms have distinctive features

This unit consists of a pdf resource and two supporting videos. It aims to help teachers and students in junior primary classes explore the distinctive features of Australian farms and forests as places and the ways Australian farmers living and working on farms are producing food and fibres, for food, clothing and shelter. The unit develops the concept of place through studies of what farms are like and how their features have changed. Students learn that farms can have natural, managed and constructed environmental features, and range from those that have largely natural features to those with largely managed or constructed features. The unit develops ideas of active citizenship as students are prompted to further consider how places can be cared for.
