To maximise the benefits of this resource, we highly recommend booking a professional development (PD) session with us prior to incorporating it into your classroom activities.

As fellow teachers, we know that it’s important to engage students in real-life examples of the topics we teach. That’s why we developed an awesome online interactive unit that aligns perfectly with our year 10 geography curriculum. This unit is particularly relevant to the interactions between people and the environment and strategies for managing places and environments sustainably. This unit covers crucial topics like biodiversity conservation, ecosystem functions, as well as land management, and provides real-life examples of champion landholders in New South Wales who are making a difference.

By engaging with this unit, your students will develop an in-depth understanding of what biodiversity is, why it’s crucial for ecosystem functions in New South Wales, and how to measure and manage biodiversity and land health within New South Wales. It’s a fun and interactive way to deliver the curriculum effectively. Students will learn about the impacts of these threats on ecosystem functions and services. They also explore strategies for mitigating these threats, such as habitat restoration, sustainable land use, and the establishment of protected areas.
