Reef Beat 2009
Reef Beat – Climate change and the reef is an innovative and curriculum-centred teaching resource that includes activities and challenges that will stimulate inquiring minds to discover all they can about the Reef. The implementation of the teaching and learning opportunities offered by these curriculum-linked activities will enhance and extend student learning.
The activities within this resource can support you to:
- Plan learning activities that focus student learning and thinking on the biological diversity that inhabits the Reef, the connected ecosystems that support it and the activities and behaviours we can all adopt to ensure its sustainable future.
- Provide students with opportunities to gain an appreciation for the Shifting Baselines concept and how it applies to their environment including the Great Barrier Reef.
- Contribute to the responsible development of active and informed citizens with a better knowledge of the Great Barrier Reef ecosystem and its inhabitants.
