Our Teacher Education Kits provide strong case studies with a focus on science, geography and sustainability learning. Kits can be downloaded directly below, or by following the relevant links.
The Helmeted Honeyeater Education Kit has been developed by BirdLife Australia, with the support of the Friends of the Helmeted Honeyeater and the Port Phillip and Westerport CMA’s Yarra4Life program, with funding from the Australian Government’s National Landcare Program. This Kit provides a great illustration of the needs of different species for particular habitat requirements, the impacts that human activities can have, and how science and conservation management can drive the recovery of species – and how students can get involved.
The Kit contains lesson plans and resources for early years/kindergarten (five lessons) and primary school teachers and educators (twelve lessons), presented at levels pre-school, foundation-two, three-four and five-six. The lessons are sequenced using an inquiry-based learning approach. This Kit has been designed to inspire students and educators to grow their appreciation of, and connection with this bird, enjoy participating in conservation action to protect it and its environment, and develop a broader understanding and commitment to looking after the natural world.
The kit can be downloaded from the Friends of the Helmeted Honeyeater website.
