Sourcing sustainable eggs

This learning sequence encourages students to investigate and learn more about the Australian egg industry and the three main production systems used by egg farmers in Australia, such as cage systems, barn systems and free range systems. They also investigate how eggs are produced on a school farm or in backyards. Their task is to learn about how and why eggs are produced sustainably in managed environments that enable people to grow and be healthy.
