Project Based Learning - Year 10

How should we address global agricultural issues?

The impact of Agriculture on the Environment: The project based learning week for Year 10 involved simulating the United Nations through a programme called Model United Nations. Students chose individual countries to research and represent and had to produce position papers and resolutions to try and solve major global issues in the world surrounding food and agriculture.  Our students were fantastically motivated, serious, mature and involved, making the week a huge success. It was incredible to see the students formally dressed and following UN etiquette in the final sessions, having only started to learn about the issues and the format of Model UN at the start of the week.
