The Australian hamburger unit
The Australian Hamburgers unit investigates the main Australian agricultural production industries (wheat, beef, dairy, sheep, pork, poultry and horticulture) from paddock to plate. The unit of work consists of four resources: a workbook, an answer guide, lesson sequence and a design folio.
The unit provides learning to allow for the completion of a major project to design and cook a hamburger using raw materials from Australian agricultural production. Additional activities involve students growing and managing a vegetable or herb garden to grow fresh produce to use in their burger and learning food preparation and cooking techniques.
The unit is designed to cover outcomes from the NSW Technology Mandatory stage 4 Syllabus context areas Agricultural technologies and Food technologies.
