Welcome to the Produce It. Protect It. Virtual Classroom!

 

 

The Virtual Classroom offers online resources which can be utilised by students within the classroom or during remote learning to explore food and fibre through multimodal activities.

 

 

 

Activities with the 15 Minute Farmer Time symbol are part of our featured 15 Minute Farmer Time series and provide students with the opportunity to hear first-hand from Victorian farmers to learn all about how our food and fibre is produced.

This Month’s 15 Minute Farmer Time:

Dairy Every Day:

 

This 15-Minute Farmer Time explores the features and needs of cows on a dairy farm. Students will have the opportunity to hear first-hand from two Victorian dairy producers about the tasks performed each day on their farm. Through a series of interactive online tasks, students will develop their understanding of the many ways dairy farmers care for their cows. Students will have the opportunity to apply their design skills, using hands-on materials, to create a paper plate cow.
