Recommended for Geography, Stage 5.

Fragile ecosystems

Ecosystems are complex and dynamic communities, with many unique features that are sensitive to change. This presentation explores some of the vulnerabilities of our ecosystems, using NSW-based case studies.

Recommended for Science, Stages 4 to 5.

Food chains and webs

Are you teaching your students about food chains and webs? This presentation explains the differences between a food chain and a web. It identifies and explores producers, consumers and decomposers, using native NSW plants and animal life as examples.
