This unit has been developed in partnership with The Royal Agricultural Society of Victoria. For over 160 years, The Royal Agricultural Society of Victoria (RASV) has been running the Royal Melbourne Show which, like other agricultural shows around the country, works to build the community’s knowledge and understanding of the vital role agriculture plays in our everyday lives. This year’s Royal Melbourne Show will be held between Saturday 21st to Tuesday 1st September.
Throughout this unit students from around Australia will be guided to explore some of the ways we all need and use agriculture and farming in our daily lives, particularly through the provision of food and fibre.
This suite of lessons is designed to provide practice for NAPLAN, the national literacy and numeracy test held in Years 3, 5, 7 and 9. While the lesson plans in this unit are not officially endorsed publications of NAPLAN’s creators and administrators (the ACARA body), they provide practice for the Australian Curriculum’s compulsory NAPLAN testing scheme.
