Teacher Notes (not visible to students)

Teaching information and Ideas taken from: Oxford-Big-Ideas-Geography- https://www.oup.com.au/__data/assets/pdf_file/0021/58017/Oxford-Big-Ideas-Geography-9-ch1-Growing-food.pdf In the instructions I have included a few links to other resources' that the teacher may wish to share with the whole class to either promote discussion before, during or after the lesson. I have included a few other linksπŸ”— that are great places to lead the students pre-lesson discussions or guided web searches. Also places for teachers to develop follow up activities/lessons for this topic. I am using this lesson as a lead into Technology -food and Fibre production // investigate how and why food & fibre are produced in managed environments (ACTDEK021).
