CORE has developed a set of interrelated teaching resources across the four learning areas of Science, Technology, Maths, and Social Studies. These are suitable for years 9 and 10 to profile the MPI’s publication “Situation and outlook for Primary Industries (SOPI), containing up-to-date information about the performance of New Zealand's primary sectors.
Each resource includes a short introductory section for teachers to use as background information related to the Primary Industries derived from generic content in the SOPI document, for example:
Sectors making up New Zealand’s Primary Industries (Industry summaries, SOPI 2016).
Export revenues by sector (SOPI 2016).
Focus on Growth – MPI through the value chain (SOPI 2016).
Key factors about meat and wool (SOPI 2016).
Champions videos and other resources supplied by MPI.
Each teaching and learning plan includes background information about the context, supporting links to information and a suggested teaching sequence for the topics, including guidance on the timeframes required for the teaching component.
