Teaching and Learning Units – an overview
The units are your online curriculum resources for K-10 classes. The units offer a range of ideas and activities for the early, primary, and middle years of schooling, and enable students to achieve outcomes set out in State and Territory curriculum frameworks.
The units have been developed to assist students to:
- develop and appreciation of climate change and its impact on marine and coastal environments;
- develop an appreciation of the greenhouse gases and carbon pollution that are emitted to the environment in Australia ;
- understand the interrelationship between the emissions and the marine and coastal environment and our society;
- adopt sustainable lifestyles; and take action for the marine and coastal environment.
The units are designed to be integrated into key learning areas in the Curriculum of Australian Schools. By using them in the context of Studies of Society and Environment, Science, Literacy, Numeracy, Technology and the Arts, greater understanding and appreciation of the greenhouse gases and carbon pollution emitted to the environment can be achieved.
