  • Resource Overview

    An engaging and innovative way to teach students Technology Mandatory Agriculture and Food Technologies!

    This can be used for online learning or in a classroom setting.

    This research task activity was developed to provide students the opportunity to research and present their findings on agricultural products in managed environments.

    Students are presented with an example research task on beef cattle that provides answers to all of the questions to help guide them in their learning experience.

    Students have the opportunity to conduct their own research on lamb and/or potatoes in two separate tasks. Students also have the opportunity to present their research in the form of an informative poster, or infographic, for each task.

    This resource was created to assist students either in an online or face to face setting. This task can be differentiated for individual students’ needs at the discretion of their teacher.

    Pack includes:

    • 10-page Research Task
    • Student activities
    • Example research task on beef cattle
    • 1 x Lamb Research Task
    • 1 x Potato Research Task
    • NSW and ACARA syllabus links

    Agriculture and Food Technologies

    › designs, communicates and evaluates innovative ideas and creative solutions to authentic problems or opportunities TE4-1DP

    › investigates how food and fibre are produced in managed environments TE4-5AG

    • investigate how food and fibre production is managed in environments as a system and how sustainability can be improved, for example: (ACTDEK032) ST
    • plants and/or animal species grown in managed environments
    • land management by Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander Peoples
    • boundaries, inputs, outputs, processes and feedback occurring in a managed environment

     

    • research legal and ethical requirements associated with agricultural production, e.g. keeping animals
    • investigate ideal conditions for growth and development of an agricultural plant or animal (ACTDEK032) ST
    • develop a schedule or calendar for ongoing care of a plant or animal species associated with an agricultural project (ACTDEP039) ST

      ACTDEK032
      Analyse how food and fibre are produced when designing managed environments and how these can become more sustainable

      Elaboration
      • comparing land and water management methods in contemporary Australian food and fibre production with traditional Aboriginal systems and countries of Asia, for example minimum-tillage cropping, water-efficient irrigation
      • describing physical and chemical characteristics of soil and their effects on plant growth when producing food and fibre products
      • investigating different animal feeding strategies such as grazing and supplementary feeding, and their effects on product quality, for example meat tenderness, wool fibre diameter (micron), milk fat and protein content when producing food and fibre products
      • investigating the management of plant and animal growth through natural means and with the use of chemical products like herbicides and medicines when producing food and fibre products
      • recognising the importance of food and fibre production to Australia's food security and economy including exports and imports to and from Asia when critiquing and exploring food and fibre production
      • recognising the need to increase food production using cost efficient, ethical and sustainable production techniques

      Elaboration
      • explaining and interpreting drawings, planning and production steps needed to produce products, services or environments for specific purposes
      • identifying risks and how to avoid them when planning production
      • investigating the time needed for each step of production
      • organising time, evaluating decisions and managing resources to ensure successful project completion and protection of the work space and local environment
