Curriculum Links is a document we’ve developed to provide direction on how sustainability can be linked into the Victorian curriculum for years F to 6.
For each subject area at each year level there are suggested sustainability activities, and ResourceSmart Schools module icons that show which module the activities link to. Curriculum Links also includes an extensive list of resources for use by teachers when developing and delivering sustainability lessons.
