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.
The resource was designed and delivered by professional environmental educators from Georges River Environmental Education Centre, thanks to grant funding we recieved from the Australian Government. Teachers are welcome to use this resource to design their own lesson plans.
