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:
Unit Plan (This document lists the resources and additional information needed for each activity.)
Activity 2 – Experiments with Eggs
Activity 3 – Looking at the life cycles of oviparous animals
Activity 4 – Methods of Egg Production
Activity 5 – Welfare of Chickens
Activity 7 – Proposal for a School Chicken Pen
(This activity is outlined in the unit plan. There are no worksheets associated with it.)
