What is the Roots & Shoots Resource Box?
The Jane Goodall Roots & Shoots Resource Box is a FREE program for primary schools across Australia. It aims to educate students, and the community, via interactive and action-based lessons about wildlife, the natural environment and challenges facing the planet.
Registration is open to all Australian primary school teachers (qualified and registered), with delivery in early 2022. In 2020, Roots & Shoots Australia produced and distributed 4000 boxes to schools across Australia – inspiring the next generation of nature custodians. You can buy the 2020 Resource Box, or individual titles, in the Jane Goodall Institute Australia online shop.
