The Southern Queensland Flying-fox Education Kit provides schools of southern Queensland with an opportunity to study flying-foxes in the classroom while achieving outcomes (particularly Biological Sciences) under the Australian Curriculum.
Each unit consists of three lessons that contain a variety of activities. Teachers may choose to complete more than the suggested lessons e.g. a teacher may choose to recap some of the year 5 activities or proceed to year 7.
These activities use a range of different learning media to provide an all-round learning experience for their students. This includes printed materials, PowerPoint presentations, YouTube videos and sound files that are all found on the All About Bats website.
The final section of this education kit provides contact details for professionals (e.g. wildlife carers, scientists and council staff) to come and talk to students about their role in looking after flying-foxes and their habitat. It also provides a list of easily accessible excursion locations if teachers wish to take their students to expereince the sights and smells of a flying-fox colony.
