About this Lesson Plan
Lessons designed for years 7-9
Use these lessons, designed for years 7-9, to draw links between soil and water catchment, and the geography and land use of the Port Phillip region.
This lesson, Water Catchment shows students that water catchments link places in the city to the food bowl, and examines some of the decisions people make in managing the health of the catchment.
The lesson, Soil Health
includes hands-on activities that explore soil types while students learn some of the ways plants work in a symbiotic relationship with soil microbiota.
Both lessons build on and refer to material in the Soil Health and Water Catchment videos, and can be used to cement and extend learning from the case study videos.
