Primary School Worksheets image
Following the release of Secondary School worksheets, the Poultry CRC  commissioned the development of an Integrated Unit aimed specifically at Primary Schools. The Unit is titled “Eggs, The Inside Story” and is a Science Based Unit for Students aged 9 – 11 years.

Lesson materials will include activities for Science, English, Mathematics, History, Creative Arts, PE and Health and Technology. The new Australian National Content Descriptors from the Australian Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting Authority, have been used in the creation of this material. The material has been split into components as follows:
