Description This unit critically examines the cross-curriculum priority area of Sustainability. It develops students' understanding of the key theoretical and pedagogical underpinnings of ecological principles that can be applied across the K-6 curriculum. It gives future educators knowledge and skills to teach civic engagement and ethical actions in order to sustain and improve natural and social environments. The unit examines the interrelatedness of individual, social, and environmental wellbeing within the context of education for sustainability in school settings. Students will gain a deeper understanding of place-based outdoor learning as an approach to teach across the primary school curriculum, support student wellbeing and engagement, and create meaningful learning experiences with nature.
