The below resource has been developed as a general information guide to support community efforts to identify weeds and take appropriate actions.
The Waterway Health Activity Sheets have been developed to assist school groups and teachers to gain a greater understanding and appreciation of waterway health and catchment management issues through a series of informative and interactive activities. The activities are aimed at student groups from grades four to seven, focusing on topics such as:
The Activity Sheets have been designed to use as 'one-off' activities or in a sequence throughout the year to complement the school curriculum for environmental studies. Some of the activities are interactive and will require students to venture outdoors, while others can be done within the classroom.
Many of the activities require students to use reference material and explore other avenues for obtaining information. The students are encouraged to take an initiative in investigating the impacts of different land uses on waterway health and to research ways in which these land uses can be improved. The activities will help students develop their understanding of the environment and the natural surroundings.
Within each activity there are words and terminologies that you will come across that may not be familiar, or have a specific meaning within the context of waterway health. These key words have been underlined in each activity sheet; you will find their meanings and other relevant terms in the 'Waterway Definitions' Activity Sheet.
For more information on how to use the Waterway Health Activity Sheets, an introduction guide for teachers is provided below.
If you would like a copy of the Waterway Health Activity Book mailed to your school classroom or for more information on other hardcopy resources useful in the classroom please contact email@example.com.
These resources are offered external to council but align to strategic objectives such as waste minimisation and waterway health.
