Teacher Resources

For the water industry, the national implementation of the Australian Curriculum: Science Foundation to Year 10 (F-10) represented a valuable opportunity to promote student and teacher understanding about key water topics and issues. In response, the Australian Water Association sponsored an education project – the AWA Australian Curriculum Project (ACP) – from 2013 to 2015. 

The project began with an analysis of water topics in the Australian Curriculum, an audit of existing curriculum resources with a gap analysis and recommendations for further actions. It focused on the Science, Geography and History subject areas. This report on the role of water in the Australian Curriculum: Science and two similar reports for Geography and History as well as some teacher guides are available below.

Water Educator's Toolkit

The purpose of this toolkit is to collate 'tried and tested' activities in a Water Education Toolkit to assist water educators—particularly novice water educators—to develop student and teacher understanding about their local water story. With the help of experienced members from the Australian Water Association Water Education Network , the toolkit will provide engaging, hands-on and experiential learning activities that can be used in face-to-face contexts with students and the public.
