Chicken Farming in the Living World School Resources
Chickens are fascinating animals and provide students with an interesting subject matter to discuss the many aspects of our living world, from the interactions between humans and animals, how we create food from animals, how scientific knowledge influences our living world, right through to understanding what a managed ecosystem looks like in the context of a broader natural ecosystem.
This new school resource ‘Chicken Farming in the Living World’ offers unique curriculum content within the ’Living World’ strands of the K-10 New South Wales Science syllabuses and is also aligned with the Biological science strand of the Australian curriculum.
This resource uses videos created by the Australian Chicken Meat Federation Inc. (ACMF) with the supporting teaching resources developed by experienced primary and secondary school teachers.
The new resources provide curriculum content tailored to each school stage across primary and secondary school and tackle the following questions;
The Kondinin book “The Story of Chicken” takes you onto Australian meat chicken farms where you can discover how meat chickens are raised, how chicken meat is processed and packaged and how a wide range of chicken products are made available for you to enjoy every day.
If you are a teacher or school librarian, please email the ACMF (firstname.lastname@example.org) to request a copy of the book (while stocks are available).
