Farming: At the heart of our life

The pack is a collection of ready-to-use teaching and learning resources which aims to raise awareness of students aged 11-15 of the importance of food and farming for Europe. It is designed to be used by teachers from a wide range of disciplines and the pack is designed to be flexible; you choose which tools or activities you want to use.

Through a selection of diverse and complementary tools and activities, teachers can help students explore three relevant themes: food, the environment and the countryside.

Please note that these resources focus on farming in the European Union overall with an emphasis on organic farming.
