Primary School Resource kits
To recognise the International Year of the Pulse in 2016, we partnered with NSW Department of Primary Industries to provide 200 resource kits to NSW primary schools free of charge. Pulses are the dry, edible seeds of plants in the legume family, including chickpeas, lentils, dry peas, and beans.
The kits contain NSW syllabus linked classroom activities that showcase the production and nutritional value of pulses grown in Australia and also a range of careers found in the industry using LEGO® minifigures. The learning activities have students working towards outcomes from NSW Science and Technology, Geography, English and Mathematics syllabuses for K-6 classes, as well as, seeds and growing pots, LEGO® minifigures and information sheets.
The full cost of the On the Pulse kit and postage was covered for the first 200 NSW primary schools that registered their interest. All kits have now been distributed.
