The content of this resource provides a balance between meeting curriculum requirements and exploring skills students can use in real-world examples of water management in the Murray–Darling Basin.
Theory- or classroom-based learning, hands-on activities, demonstrations, and field studies are used to connect students with the complexities of managing water for the environment.
Students are encouraged to inquire, investigate and complete a range of tasks, including gathering data and using appropriate methods to present and communicate what they have found. By engaging in these tasks we hope to inspire future water managers.
This teacher resource is accompanied by the Rivers: Sharing our water – Student workbook.
