With the assistance of a teacher, students identify the Australasian Recycling Labels and the purpose behind them, specifically the intention of reducing material waste and helping the environment. Students will then design and create a memory game with the intention of practising associating common household and classroom waste with the appropriate Australasian Recycling Label.
Through independent research, students will learn the design and purpose behind the Australasian Recycling Labels. They will then creatively communicate these understandings and the Labels to others in the form of an informative advertising poster.
Students begin creating their school biodiversity trail. Working in groups, students identify potential trail sites and work as a class to select a site based on parameters defined by the students themselves. In the following class, students visit this site to create a school biodiversity trail, recording key features, identifying some of the plants and […]

Students complete a biodiversity survey of their school’s compost bins. They then collect data to determine how successful their school’s green waste is operating. Students make recommendations to their school community on improvements to the school’s composting system.
Students prepare information and materials to support users of a trail in or around your school where people can assess local biodiversity using a leading citizen science app. Students begin by creating a package of information to inform visitors about how to use their trail, including maps, field guides, ClimateWatch app details and recording sheets. […]
Students identify the environment along their school biodiversity trail and how well it is being conserved. Students begin by investigating whether there are any existing management plans or biodiversity recovery activities in place for their site. They then identify the plants and animals along their trail, identify species and create field guides for these plants […]
