Lesson summary

Students design a website for their community to enable them to plant wildlife gardens. They explain on the website the kinds of projects that can be done around the home and the benefits to themselves and local wildlife.

NB – There are two suggested ‘considering social action’ projects. This one and ‘Biodiversity revegetation project.’ These are both lengthy projects and most classes will only have time for one of these. 

Learning intentions:

Students will...

  • develop an effective communication project relevant to the local community and explain how to increase biodiversity in the home garden.
  • use a web based medium to design the communication project.
