    Resource details

    Plants, Animals and our World is made up of four lessons, each with an online learning module and slides with supporting classroom activities.

    Module 1
    Ignition Course
    Sustainable global resources

    Students learn that Earth is a source of limited resources, and we need to manage our use of them carefully, working within the limits of each system.

    Module 2
    Protecting healthy biodiversity

    Students discover that organisms in an ecosystem are interdependent. Biodiversity protects the delicate balance of life on Earth, and we must understand the conditions that support it.

    Module 3
    The Compassion Project Course
    Positively impacting climate change

    Students explore how living things are adapted to the climate zones they live in. Data shows us human activity is leading to global warming and climate change, and we must act.

    Module 4
    Endeavour Course
    Innovating for a healthy life

    Living things adapt to changes in their environment over long periods. Our innovation can help us adapt to an environment changing faster than we can evolve.
