Teachers and students work together to investigate conservation issues, propose solutions, and take meaningful action.
Students should prepare for their research. The big idea, essential question, the challenge and guiding questions are the pre-visit materials that need to be considered and discussed before visiting Melbourne Zoo.
Big idea: Sustainability: wildlife conservation
Essential question: Do zoos help animals in the wild?
The challenge: Develop your own idea to help wildlife in your home, school or community.
Create your own community conservation campaign to help save wildlife. Visit Actwild.org.au for ideas and inspiration, then share what you have done with us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll put it up on Wild Activists.
