Following on from its successful distribution of the Teacher’s Resource Kit, the Poultry CRC has produced downloadable versions of much of the content of the Teacher’s Folder. The worksheets listed below complement the materials provided in the kit and can be used with the kit or on their own.

These sheets are available for any teaching professional to freely download and use in their classroom. If you have developed some worksheets or lesson plans that can be used to teach children about Poultry in schools, and would like to share them with other teachers, then we’d love to hear from you. Contact Poultry Hub Office (poultryhub@une.edu.au),  if you would like to list your materials on our website so that they can be accessed by other schools.

You can download the complete set of worksheets in one PDF by clicking here (3.2MB)

(Note that to foil those internet-savvy students, this file does not contain the answers to the worksheets.)

The full PDF with answers included, for teachers is available here.
