Pulse education kit

In 2016 we distributed the On the Pulse education kits to schools across New South Wales. The kit provided a great set of resources and opportunities to incorporate hands-on, engaging pulse activities across the curriculum.

Although this program has now concluded the written materials are available to download and the resources that are referred to are readily available:

  • Lego® Minifigure pieces (to make up to five characters) for students to use in creative writing, researching or role-play activities. You may choose to use your Lego® Minifigure as the ‘face’ of any communication that you share with the school community.

  • Broad bean seeds to grow either in the pots supplied or in your school garden. The broad bean plants can be used for activities including investigating variable growing conditions, scientific illustration or measurement.

  • Mung beans for sprouting and eating or investigating preferred growing conditions.

  • Chickpeas for cooking or preparing and eating.

  • Career profile cards of a range of roles in the pulse industry.

  • Pulse information sheets from Pulse Australia and the International Year of the Pulse.

  • A range of other resources from Pulse Australia.
