Links to the Australian Curriculum

  • This Unit supports a cross-curricula approach to the delivery of the Year 6 Australian Curriculum within an agricultural context. It focuses on the key learning areas of English, Mathematics, Science, History and Geography. It does not cover all aspects of the content descriptors for the Year 6 curriculum.

This Unit, So You Think You Know Where Your Food Comes From is divided into two standalone key learning topics: So Let s Talk About The Food You Eat and So How Is The Food You Eat Produced. Together they provide students with the skills to answer the key inquiry question: So you think you know where your food comes from?, during the course of which students will develop an understanding of both where their food comes from and the processes involved to get it from the paddock/garden to the plate.
