The Molonglo Conservation Group (MCG) has developed the Wondrous Box-Gum Grassy Woodlands education campaign to highlight the importance of our region’s beautiful ecosystems and promote understanding of our endangered ecological communities! This campaign features a teaching package and colouring book, both available at no cost via the links, below: 

 

The Wondrous Box-Gum Grassy Woodlands Teaching Package

Aimed at Years 4 – 6, The Wondrous Box-Gum Grassy Woodlands teaching package has been created to engage students and increase public knowledge of the ACT’s Box-Gum Grassy Woodlands, their inhabitants, and the threats they face. Aimed at interacting with students in a COVID-safe way, and without the need for in-school visits, our classroom and outdoor activities are designed to be a fun and engaging way to learn about the values of sustainability and protecting our local ecosystems. 

The teaching package includes three activities. The teachers guide provides instructions and background to all three activities:

Activity 1 – Woodlands listening sounds (.pptx)

Activity 2 – Schoolyard Safari (.pdf)

Activity 3 – Wondrous Box-Gum Grassy Woodland Activity sheet (.pdf)

Teachers guide (.pdf)

 

This teaching package can be used alongside the Wondrous Box-Gum Grassy Woodlands: a colouring exploration of a diverse ecosystem colouring-in book below. 

Wondrous Box-Gum Grassy Woodlands: a colouring exploration of a diverse ecosystem

Wondrous Box-Gum Grassy Woodlands: a colouring exploration of a diverse ecosystem colouring-in book is a collaboration between MCG, the ACT Government and talented Australian artist and ecologist Paula Peeters, funded by the Australia Government's National Landcare Program. Illustrated by Paula Peeters and written by Jed Pearson and Ecologist Dr Martin Henery, this beautiful book depicts our region’s endangered Box-Gum-Grassy Woodlands, the animals and plants that live there and how we, as their neighbours, can care for them.

This project is supported by the Australian Capital Territory Government, through funding from the Australian Government’s National Landcare Program.
