Where food comes from

This section provides activity ideas and resources to introduce plants and animals, food being grown, reared or caught, and farming and processing.

The key learning objectives are:

  • all food comes from plants or animals;
  • food has to be grown, reared or caught;
  • food is produced and processed in different ways.

This section builds on the learning from the 3-5 years area. For further rigour and challenge, go to the 7-11 years area.

The resources in this section meet the Guidelines for producers and users of school education resources about food.
