Weed information for schools
'Weeds Attack!' is a web-based, multimedia resource with interactive learning activities aimed at preparing students to investigate a local weed of national significance. This is a hands-on project based on the Weed Warriors program. The resource models the activity of growing a biocontrol for bitou bush, using a games-based approach and extensive use of video. The resource is suitable for individual or group learning, homework, whole class discussions, demonstrations or investigations. It is based on the Stage 3 Science and Technology syllabus, but is also useful for Stage 4 Science and Stage 6 Earth and Environmental Science: Introduced species.
Resources for schools about other aspects of primary industries is available at www.landlearnnsw.org.au.
