The Waste Management in Perth teacher and student booklets have been developed for the Year 12 Geography ATAR Curriculum. These booklets link to Unit 4 Planning Sustainable Places, depth study one. There are six topics to explore and optional extension activities and sample examination questions.

Learning objective

The Waste Management in Perth teacher and student booklets support the in-depth study of waste management in Perth, Western Australia.

Two booklets were created, a student booklet and a teacher booklet. The student booklet can be worked through in its entirety, in parts, or given out as pre-reading or supplementary work. Each section may span 1-2 lessons.
