I think the concept looks great. I can imagine the children having lots of fun with it and the logo/tagline fits
beautifully with your artistic approach
to communicating ideas.

I've just had a look at the teaching unit. It certainly is comprehensive and of excellent quality. It has lots of options for activities and teachers like this as it allows them to tailor it to
their needs/students' needs. It's got the creative side of things covered too, which is a real plus. I'm sure the unit will get a positive response. It's great to see good ideas coming from people outside of teaching.
The Illawarra Grammar School (TIGS)
Food Bowl Connection Unit
At Food River Station, we have created an exciting new resource to inspire a much needed connection between students and a controversial world class Australian food bowl, the Liverpool Plains in NSW.
Given that this place feeds so many people, and that
food is essential for our survival, we need for this place.
By setting a task that requires a deep understanding of the food bowl, a relationship progressively builds between the student and their food source.
The Food Bowl Connection initiative is built around our
belief that connecting with a place is fundamental
caring for it!
In the Australian Curriculum this is a unit of work for
Year 6 in Technologies and Humanities and Social
In the Stage 4 NSW Syllabuses this is a unit for Agricultural Technology and Geography.
