Food 4 Thought Oxfam Resource

Food 4 Thought – a resource for Year 9 Unit 1 Biomes and food security.

The Year 9 Geography program has been developed as an inquiry sequence in partnership with the Geography Teachers’ Association of Victoria (GTAV), specifically for Year 9 Geography students to engage with Unit 1: Biomes and food security.

Students gain an understanding of how biomes are altered to grow food, and how climate change and land grabs impact food production. Students explore how food security can be achieved and what they, as global citizens, can do. The inquiry includes :

  • Fast facts about global food production and food security
  • Which biomes are able to produce food?
  • Major challenges to food production – climate change
  • Major challenges to food production – competing for land use
  • How can food security be achieved in the future?
  • What can WE do to improve food security?
