Education material for schools and teachers
Free online education resources and information for teachers and students about the Georges River and water in Australia. These modules have been prepared by certified environmental educators to align with the NSW curriculum for primary schools. They make lesson planning easy for the busy professional teacher.
The resources include engaging, hands on and easy activities, educational videos for kids, as well as theory to teach kids about geography, science, nature and the environment.
Upper Georges River
Take your Year 1 and 2 students on an online journey to the gorgeous upper Georges River in south Sydney to help teach them about geography and science and experience the wonder of the natural world.
Water is essential for life, but we often take it for granted. Everyone should learn to appreciate water! Georges Riverkeeper Stage 3 Education Modules provide students with theoretical and practical learning about water and waterways.
Zero Litter in Georges River
Help to educate Stage 3 students about the Georges River and its pollution problems, with three curriculum-aligned lessons. Students will conduct a surface water drainage investigation and learn to understand the issue with litter and stormwater.
They will learn about the litter problem, brainstorming solutions for their school along the way, and study what makes a good campaign, then develop their own campaign to reduce litter in Georges River.
