Teacher guide Activity: Australia's water future communication project

TLF ID M014384

This is a web resource about water issues in Australia that provides a student activity accompanied by a teacher guide. The activity requires students to identify water issues that may affect Australia in the future, describe their possible effects and develop a presentation about these issues. A student worksheet provides activity instructions, including research questions, and suggests that students work in small groups to develop the presentation.
