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.
Registration is open now to all Australian primary-aged educators, with Resource Boxes expected to be delivered from October.Last year Roots & Shoots Australia produced and distributed almost 4000 boxes to schools across Australia free of charge – to educate and inspire the next generation of custodians of planet earth.
This year’s Roots & Shoots Resource Box features four more beautiful, exclusive and new hardback books – as featured below. To see inside and learn more click here.
Educators will also receive 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.
