Welcome to one of the Jane Goodall Institute Australia’s most special programmes!
Sign up for our stunning primary school educational resources created with Dr. Jane Goodall herself. The 2021 Roots & Shoots Resource Box lands across Australia in October – excluding PO Boxes.
What is the Roots & Shoots Resource Box?
The Jane Goodall Roots & Shoots Resource Box is a FREE box of resources for primary schools and home schools (of children of primary school age) across Australia. It aims to educate students, and the community, via interactive and action-based programs about wildlife, the natural environment and challenges facing the planet.
In 2020, Roots & Shoots Australia produced and disseminated almost 4,000 boxes to schools across Australia free of charge – to educate and inspire the next generation as custodians of our planet. You can view and buy the books contained in the 2020 Resource Box in our shop.
This year’s Roots & Shoots Resource Box is due to land from October and features four beautiful books on astronomy, Indigenous community conservation, the Islands of Australia and plants – plus lesson plans, video resources, school fundraising opportunities and group support. Also included is a comprehensive teacher’s guide plus information on how to get involved in local conservation, our global Roots & Shoots youth-led movement and our tree-planting friends at WOODiWILD.

As part of the Roots & Shoots Resource Box for Schools, our partners at Adelaide University are leading incredible research on the impacts of nature connectedness to children’s mental health – a vital part of our programme. Our 2020 survey is currently underway, but if you’d like to be a part of our groundbreaking 2021 research please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
