Best of Catchment Connections
The Best of Catchment Connections for the Adelaide & Mount Lofty Ranges (5Mb PDF) was created as a curriculum resource for use throughout the region. While designed with Primary Schools in mind, it's very useful for anyone teaching about Natural Resources Management and Education for Sustainability in our area.
The Best of Catchment Connections is an abridged version of the complete four volume Catchment Connections resource, which is available below.
Catchment Connections is a resource providing teachers with a systematic approach to teaching about catchments and ecosystems. It contains background information, lesson ideas, worksheets and identification charts addressing a range of locally specific issues.
The resource is divided into four folders, each of which covers a particular area of learning. The four areas are: Understanding Catchments, Understanding Ecosystems, Human Impacts and Taking Action. Although the resource was developed specifically for the Southern Adelaide area, the vast majority of the information is applicable to the rest of the Adelaide & Mt Lofty Ranges.
Please note that it was released in 2005, and as such some of the references to external resources, weblinks and names of government agencies may have changed since that time.
