This comprehensive resource has been developed in collaboration with Greening Australia, which may be able to assist with a tree-planting day in schools in the Greater Sydney area. Other schools outside of Greater Sydney could supply their own trees or partner with another local organisation or council.
An action-based research project is included in this resource, incorporating field activities with step-by-step instructions and downloadable worksheets.
Land management of Australia’s National Reserve System is explained in detail. Students will gain an understanding of the various protections afforded these reserves, by all levels of government.
Aboriginal culture and connection to Country is also integrated throughout this resource.
Students will explore landscapes and landforms from around the world and learn:
- How they are formed
- Why they need protection
- How they are managed
