The pack is a collection of ready-to-use teaching and learning resources which aims to raise awareness among Europeans aged 11-15 of the importance of food and farming for Europe.
It is designed to be used by teachers from a wide range of disciplines – for example geography, science, citizenship, economics, European studies, home economics, agricultural science, information and communications technologies and social science.
Through a selection of diverse and complementary tools and activities, teachers can help students explore three relevant themes: food, the environment and the countryside. It is not intended to provide tools for teaching policy per se to students, but to show how agriculture benefits all citizens.
There is a module for each of the three themes, food, the environment and the countryside. Each module contains:
a brief introduction for teachers outlining its learning objectives along with links to resources
worksheets with learning activities for students
a project outline for students proposing a cross-curricular project on the theme of the module
