Module 3: Rainfall, Droughts and Floods

Education module

Fresh water is not evenly distributed across the surface of the Earth, with serious consequences for life and the lifestyles of people. The amount of available water also changes over time: droughts and floods are severe cases highlighting the uneven distribution of water through time. 

In this module, students will:

  • create a story about mythical creatures, following the style of a Dreaming Story
  • reflect on and suggest improvements to scientific design
  • explore the Bureau of Meteorology website to obtain data
  • analyse a dataset from the Bureau of Meteorology to answer questions about rainfall
