The Department of Fisheries and Woodside Energy, are excited to announce that Phase 2 of Marine WATERs (Western Australian Teacher Education Resources) http://marinewaters.fish.wa.gov.au, is now live!
We have just launched a range of new resources for years K–10. These resources include new lesson plans, PowerPoint presentations, a poster, and also two completely new resource types in the ‘Case Study’ and ‘In Depth’ series.
The ‘In Depth’ series aim to provide supplementary information for the lesson plans and draw together a range of facts, research and current issues. The first of these is on the Leeuwin Current, the driving force of the marine environment in WA.
The ‘Case Study’ series will look at a specific issue, usually fishery related, in detail. The first Case Study explores a coral monitoring project undertaken on Christmas Island.
Resources will continue to be added to the Marine WATERs website throughout 2012, with further lesson plans, posters, In Depths, Fact Sheets and another Case Study to come.
