1.1. Step 2: Brainstorm Foods and Fibres

1.1.1. Purpose

1.1.1.1. Diagnostic information - What do the students know.

1.1.1.2. Engage students with the topic

1.1.1.3. Engage students with the technologies - Mindmeister

1.1.2. Focus Question

1.1.2.1. How are different foods and fibres produced on farms?

1.1.3. Teacher facilitates a class brainstorm around the question - How are different foods and fibres produced on farms? – while modelling to students how to create their own brainstorm using the software.

3. Step 1 - What do I want to know

3.1. Students make a list of questions about what they would like to know about farms and enter it into their Digital Food and Fibre Journal. For example;

3.1.1. OneNote Digital Journal - Each student has their own digital Food and Fibre Journal. The Journal takes the students through the unit of work collecting and collating the students work samples, as well as providing opportunities for students to store and use different types of data in different ways.

3.1.2. Example of questions you could expect from students; • How do farms collect all the wheat? •How do farms stop foxes from eating all the sheep? •How do you farm fish? •What can farms do to stop the animals from getting sick?

3.3.3. Engage students with the topic

3.3.4. Engage students with their OneNote Food and Fibre Journals.

4. Step 3: Draw it

4.1.1. Diagnostic information - What do the students know.

4.1.2. Engage students with the topic

4.1.3. Engage students with each other

4.1.4. Engage students with the technologies

4.2. Focus Question

4.2.1. How are different foods and fibres produced on farms?

4.2.2. Which idea will I draw?

4.2.3. Does my drawing communicate the idea/concept?

4.2.4. Can I explain my drawing to my peers?

4.3. Personal Response - Students select one idea from what they have just learnt and draw one of the ideas.
