A Teacher’s Guide to Freshwater Fishes, Crayfishes & Mussels of South-Western Australia is now available. The Teacher’s Guide is a companion to the Freshwater Fauna of South-western Australia education resources of a field guide, two brochures and three short films that were launched in 2011 in collaboration with Murdoch University’s Freshwater Fish Group and Fish Health Unit.
A Teacher’s Guide to Freshwater Fishes, Crayfishes & Mussels of South-Western Australia has separate booklets for each year level from Year 1 – 10. The aim of this Teacher’s Guide is to provide a supporting document for the book, ‘A Field Guide to Freshwater Fishes, Crayfishes and Mussels of South-Western Australia’ and enable students to develop an understanding of the importance of our native fish and other fauna and the problems they face in our waterways. This resource was written to provide teachers with activities which link directly to the National Science Curriculum with a local focus.
The activities provided within each booklet are designed to suit the specific year level. Each booklet also contains teacher notes and student information pages with detailed information about the specific freshwater fauna species highlighted. For each of these species where it can be found in the Field Guide and whether film footage is available to view is also included. Key words are used to help students learn more about these topics through them researching their meanings and finding the words in a Hidden Word puzzle.
