MPI kiwifruit resources
19 January 2017
These recently released resources from Ministry of Primary industries (MPI) include an excellent set of learning activities for technology
The activities target level 4 and level 5 of the technology learning area, in particular the characteristics of technology component of the nature of technology strand. Students explore the range of technological developments that have allowed the kiwifruit industry to grow.
Learning activities are also available in mathematics, science, and social science. These would be great to use with a shared thematic approach to programme planning that covered several learning areas.
Another major crop, for example blueberries, cherries, or stone fruit may also grow in your region. The approach taken in the kiwifruit resource, could be translated to these.
