Kitchen Garden Education for the Secondary Years: Connecting to the Curriculum (Book 1) is the first book of its kind for the secondary sector, offering a direct link between a school’s kitchen garden program and curriculum-integrated classroom learning.
Organised into eight chapters according to the main learning areas of the Australian Curriculum, the book offers a range of fun and challenging student learning tasks for Years 7–10, which reinforces subject-specific learning with a kitchen or garden theme.
Each task has been specially designed to give students the opportunity to apply hands-on learning gained in the kitchen and garden to real-world scenarios, whether it’s debating food production issues, learning how to shop economically for pantry ingredients or studying plant cells under a microscope.
This book makes delivering classes easy. Each chapter has been developed to provide a continuum of learning across Years 7–10. As well, each learning task comes with teaching notes, providing educators with all the information they need to prepare students to achieve the relevant curriculum outcomes.
Fully illustrated and designed to be usable and clear for both teachers and students, Kitchen Garden Education for the Secondary Years is a valuable resource for any secondary educator wanting to bring pleasurable food education into the classroom.
