Ecolinc's Discovering Wetlands outreach program

Discovering Wetlands is designed for students in Years 5 to 8. It explores the importance of wetland environments including the plants and animals that inhabit them, as well as the threat they are under and the importance of protecting these threatened ecosystems.

Students will find a range of online resources here. These can be accessed individually within the Resources section of this website, or through the Student navigator, which both presents online activities and contextualises them with a range of offline classroom investigations.

The Teacher navigator offers professional learning ideas to support teachers in presenting this rich material to students. In particular, the navigator:
•   presents background information on the science content
•   introduces the key questions related to each challenge
•   presents higher order questions to support student engagement
•   includes practical hints for each challenge
•   offers guidance on how aspects of tasks may be used for assessment.
