Science Week Food and Fibre Film Festival

Teachers! If you're looking for a fabulous online event to do with your class remotely — or in the classroom — consider sitting the kids down to watch our brand new series of George the Farmer films where we investigate apples, chickpeas, dairy, forestry and wool.

THE FILMS
The 6-7 minute fun musical videos are accessible on YouTube and ABC iView and are complemented by our FREE curriculum-aligned educators guides for Foundation - Year 4 levels covering STEAM subjects. Get the kids up boogying with George, Ben and Simone and then give them a task such as designing a robotic dairy, creating art from seeds or making butter from scratch. Each topic's guide is over 60 pages and is jam-packed full of exciting activities. You choose how long you would like the Festival to go for — 7 minutes or 45 minutes!
All films can be played directly from our YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/georgethefarmer (just click on Farming for Kids playlist).


THE BOOKS
Why not make a full food day out of it and read one of our fun picture storybooks. We have books on apples, dairy, pulses, vegetables and more!
George the Farmer's vision is a world where kids connect to the earth, food and farm. Will you join us on our mission?


THE FREE CURRICULUM-ALIGNED RESOURCES
The curriculum-aligned teachers resources can be downloaded from our website.
