Primary School Program

Project Numbat has developed a comprehensive education program for junior (K–3) and middle/upper (4–7) primary school students.

The program focuses on the Numbat and other Australian native animals. It includes a presentation with accompanying lesson plan and a teacher and student resource package.

Teachers can use the detailed lesson plan provided to deliver the presentation component themselves or request for a Project Numbat volunteer to visit the school, deliver the presentation and interact in person with the student group.

The resource package includes a variety of cross-curricular tasks for use before and after the presentation and ensures key learning concepts are developed over a range of varied learning experiences.

The Project Numbat primary school education program is a useful resource for teachers which instils in their students a thorough understanding of our State animal emblem and engenders a love of this special marsupial.

Please register below to gain access to the package which includes:

  • a PowerPoint Presentation
  • Detailed Lesson Plan
  • Numbat Fact Sheet

Secondary and Community Program

We are also developing a package for secondary school students and community groups and would love to hear ideas from people working in these areas on how best we can support their students’ learning.

Looking for a Project Numbat volunteer to speak at your school?

While the Project Numbat Education Package is designed so teachers can present the material themselves, we can provide a Project Numbat volunteer to visit your school, deliver the presentation and facilitate discussions on-site with students. Please note they are not all trained teachers, though all have experience working within the education field and all have current Working with Children status.

Donations are warmly welcomed.
