Ships and the marine environment

Ships and the marine environment

A series of web pages including flash animation, downloadable curriculum materials and student activity sheets. The site helps students to learn about the role of shipping and the transportation of cargo, how ships stay afloat, the journey of containers and other types of cargo. They will experiment finding out how ships stay afloat, and what occasionally makes them sink. Ship's crews play an important role in making sure their ship does not cause pollution. Ships are essential for our livelihood. Australia imports and exports millions of tonnes of goods each year which help maintain the Australian economy
