Teacher Pack: Coastal Ecology

Teacher Pack: Coastal Ecology

In this pack you will find a range of ideas, activities, resources and lesson plans, designed to allow you to engage students on the topic of Coastal Ecology, facilitate learning and maximise understanding of natural coastal processes and management strategies for the local beaches, foreshores and dunes on the Gold Coast. Resources are created for targeted year groups and include clear curriculum links. Our coastline is teeming with life. From the great sandy dunes of South Stradbroke Island, to the rocky shore at Burleigh headland, to the coastal wetlands of Coombabah, there is an abundance of plant and animal life of all shapes and sizes. To the naked eye, the sandy beach environment could be likened to a desert. Take a closer look though, and you can find a wide range of flora and fauna. In fact, just one bucket of sand can hold more diversity than an entire rainforest! Dunes are critical to the health of our beaches. They are buffer zones that reduce the impact of shoreline variability on our city. Vegetation is vital to the maintenance of the dune system. It protects the beach from erosive wave action. The dunes, rocky shores and mangroves are home to an assortment of wildlife, including reptiles, insects, birds and mammals. The resources in this pack allow you and your students to explore the Coastal Ecology and its habitats of the Gold Coast, through engaging and thought provoking activities. https://www.griffith.edu.au/engineering-information-technology/griffith-centre-coastal-management/community-projects/coasted/programs/resources/teacher-pack-coastal-ecology

Qatar History and Desert Bundle

Qatar History and Desert Bundle

I lived and I worked in Qatar for a year. I know that while you need to teach about Qatar History, the books you are given are not easy to use and certainly won't last you a whole year and so I took the books I was given and I extended the tasks to produce a more interesting and more supportive learning environment, ideal for both the teachers and their students to get a lot more out of this topic.
