An engaging online research task for students to investigate multicultural influences on contemporary Australian diets.
Students are to research the multicultural influences on contemporary Australian diets and present their findings in an informative and visually appealing way. Students have opportunities for autonomous learning throughout this task.
This research task was developed for students to investigate and present information in a creative and innovative way.
This task can be completed online and will require students to conduct their own research. Students are also given the opportunity to reflect on their own experiences with multicultural cuisine and answer a range of questions once they have completed their PowerPoint presentations.
This resource includes a 9-minute instructional video that steps the students through the successful completion of the task.
We have provided a student sample that can be used as an example of how students can present their findings. Students do not have to follow the sample format, it is only to be used as a guide for inspiration.
