The Years 7-10 resource – “Understanding more about marine parks in South Australian waters” showcases marine ecotourism, with students guided to develop ideas for a new ecotourism venture in a marine park. The resources are strongly linked with STEM, Geography and Work Studies and incorporate a Teachers Resource at the front and the Student Project Files at the back, whilst utilising Project Based Learning and the Solution Fluency Methodology.
