The George the Farmer free teaching resources have been developed by a qualified teaching consultant. The resources are aligned to the Australian school curriculum and aimed at Foundation - Year 4 levels. Subject areas covered include Literacy, Music, Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths.
Many of the activities included within the guides can be used with pre-school children. There are also lots of beaut activity sheets that can be downloaded for free too.

If you have any ideas for future resources, please don't hesitate to send us a message.
