Unit of work
Wildlife is an important and fascinating topic for students to explore. Sadly, many animal species are dangerously close to becoming extinct. Raising awareness of this issue has never been more important.
Here you will find a five-lesson unit of work investigating Endangered Wildlife. The lessons are aimed at students in years 3 to 7, but are flexible enough to be adapted for other year levels.
Each lesson has a brief introduction, broad learning outcomes, a list of required resources, suggested assessment options and activity sheets.
There is also an Australian Curriculum year level chart which outlines the unit links for years 3 to 7 in the Science, Humanities and Social Sciences and English learning areas.
There are extra cross-curricular lesson ideas focused on endangered wildlife to support the unit of work.
