Waterwise educational resources for schools

A number of waterwise resources and curriculum activities have been developed to help students learn about water and living sustainably.

These lesson plans, activities and background information for primary and middle years support the Australian Curriculum. Waterwise toolkits for schools are designed to support teachers by providing easy-to-use stand-alone activities that develop student understanding about water issues.

Lesson plans and activities are grouped according to year level and subject area, along with relevant resources that support the activities.
