This program introduces the International Union for the Conservation of Nature's Redlist classifications (endangered, least concern, extinct). Students learn about an Endangered Victorian invertebrate (the Giant Gippsland Earthworm) through an extended investigation and explore how research scientists collaborate. Students develop their classification, problem-solving and analytical skills through a hands-on research investigation.
Students explore food webs and the pressures placed on species associated with human activity through simulation activities and drawing on real life examples. The module consists of a student workbook and a teacher resource book with solutions.
