Environmental and Zoo Education Centres NSW: Teaching Resources

Environmental and zoo education centres

Gaining an understanding of the environment is essential if students are to develop positive and balanced attitudes towards it. Knowledge of basic environmental concepts equips students with the skills required for active and informed participation in managing the environment.

The ability to act for the environment relies on the acquisition of skills to identify, interpret and communicate environmental problems and to find and implement solutions. Our teaching must provide students with these skills. In this way students:

  • will employ these skills to explore the world around them
  • identify features of the local environment, and
  • recognise that action is required to maintain and improve their local environment

Resources have been organised into focus areas and cross-curriculum priorities. Each area contains a range of activities and resources that can be used in the classroom and across your school.
