About this module
The land management module has been designed for students of primary school age to demonstrate how science decisions have short- and long-term implications for the environment, communities and individuals. It will also show how living things use the resources of the earth, solar system and universe to meet their needs; and how environments are dynamic, and have living and non-living components that interact.
In this module, students have opportunities to:
- investigate the causes and consequences of salinity on both the environment and agriculture
- suggest alternative practices aimed at reducing the salinity hazard
