Sharks and Rays of SA: Launch of new educator resources and teacher professional development

  • - (ACST)

South Australia’s shark and rays species are fascinating. Did you know that we have over 65 species living in our waters?

Bring them and the scientists that study them into your classroom with these brand new, curriculum linked resources.

The first of their kind in South Australia, National Parks and Wildlife Service SA in conjunction with Parks Australia and other passionate partners, have been busy working on locally relevant content for South Australia’s educators.

We invite you to an online launch and Teacher Professional Development session which will showcase two brand new sharks and rays videos and a Year 7 science curriculum linked resource. The videos and resource cover

  • Ocean Literacy Principle #5: The ocean supports a great diversity of life and ecosystems.
  • Characteristics of sharks and rays of South Australia including classification.
  • studying South Australia's sharks and ray diversity using BRUVs (baited remote underwater video systems)
  • The Commonwealth and State Marine Parks that these species can be found and how they can contribute to their protection.

Other marine and ocean literacy resources will also be showcased, so if you have students from kindergarten to Year 12, we have locally relevant marine content for you.

Join us to learn more about these resources and how you can apply them in your learning setting, from the amazing people behind their development.

Meet Park Rangers, marine scientists, videographers and marine educators and learn how you can be part of a growing community of educators working towards ocean literacy.

Professional development certificates will be provided.

Registrations are essential. This session will be recorded.
