    Another resource for teaching about the environment is teachers guide titled Environment and Nature and uses three picture books to look at the local environment and nature. 

    The books include ' Why I love Australia, by Bronwyn Bancroft recommended for 2-7 years; Rusty loses his Loop, by Josie and Matthew Wright-Simon recommended for 4-7 years; and Tuart Dwellers, by Jane Ramage recommended for 7 – 12 years.' Scootle)

    Cool Australia is a great website for teaching about sustainability. This is an example of a Year 3/4 unit about recycling mobile phones. To quote them,  'In this activity students identify the benefits of recycling mobile phones. They will develop the understanding and skills necessary to act responsibly and create texts that inform and persuade others to take action for sustainable futures.'

     SEAQ is inviting members to contribute any ideas or resources for incorporating sustainability into teaching. These are a few picture book examples that could be used as resources for teaching sustainability to younger students: ' Bilby Secrets' by Edell Wignell, discusses the endangered bilby;' One Small Island' by Alison Lester and Coral Tulloch, is about the struggle of modern day scientists to restore Macquarie Island to its presettlement state prior to Whaling;  'The Dream of a Thylacine' by Margaret Wild is about the Tasmanian Tiger which became extinct in the 1930's. Do you as a teacher have any other examples of texts that can be used in teaching in this area?


    We would love to hear you ideas for teaching about sustainability.
