Reef guardians – wetlands

Reef guardians – wetlands

In this unit students investigate different wetland types. They describe how wetlands are part of the water cycle. Students identify different animals that live in wetlands and group and classify them. Students recognise and understand the interactions between living things in food chains and food webs in a wetland, and how human activity can affect these interactions. Students understand and investigate water health of a wetland and consider threats to wetland health and how to manage it.
