Join our exciting new nature education programme!
**Due to COVID-19 delays, Resource Boxes will be delivered to participants from mid-October**
The Roots & Shoots Resource Box is a new FREE initiative of the Jane Goodall Institute of Australia (JGIA). This curriculum-linked, action-based nature education program aims to engage students, their families, and the community about our wildlife plus the natural environment. We aim to promote optimism for our future by encouraging young people to become environmental champions!
The Resource Box is designed for use by primary school teachers to share life-long lessons with our children. It is full of fabulous FREE resources, including:
➣ Four beautiful books:
- Local Safari: Fun, ethical and hands-on activities to inspire environmental champions
- Amazing Australia: Explore the unique relationships between Australia’s spectacular wildlife and their environments
- What on Earth?: Meet the weirdest, wildest and most wonderful animals on the planet!
- Incredible Earth: Discover the fantastic geographical marvels of the world
➣ Information about the wonderful WOODiWILD tree-planting project; and
➣ Teachers Guide and Resources on how to get involved, ideas and lesson plans.
The Resource Box is funded with support from the Phillips Foundation. There will be no charge for this exciting resource for teachers and is limited to 4000 (one per school). Boxes will be delivered in October 2020.
Please Note: Parents who are homeschooling are eligible, however we will ask you to submit completed education action plans to receive your box. Insert 'Homeschool' in the School field and provide your relevant address details.
