3 Products for 3 Simple Earth Hour Activities
We have hand-picked 3 different products to engage your students in thinking about the environment and the significance of Earth Hour in an uniquely Australian context.
1. Our Marine Book Box tells a story of the land and sea as related by the traditional caretakers of the land.
What better way to embrace and celebrate an Australian concept like Earth Hour than by celebrating and teaching student s more about the traditional care and respect of Australia's Indigenous peoples for the unique environment of Australia?
Use this beautiful book box to initiate a discussion with students about the diversity of the Australian environment as you discover each "spirit animal"...
2. Due to being girt by sea, Australia is home to some of the most unique animals in the World that have evolved in our unique environment over thousands of years of isolation. Our Big Australian Animals Puzzles are a collection of beautiful hand-painted jigsaw puzzles that provide an interactive opportunity to learn more about unique Australian animals such as the Frill Necked Lizard, Platypus and Echidna.
How can we protect these animals and their natural habitats by being more environmentally conscious?

3. How long is an hour? What does 60 minutes actually feel like? What can we achieve in the classroom in the same time that Earth Hour asks us to turn off our lights?
Operated by a wind-up mechanism like a watch, this Big Magnetic Timer is a fantastic electricity-free visual aid we feel can and should form the backdrop to any Earth Hour Lesson Plan.
Set the timer and start your activities. Challenge your students and yourself to see just how much you can achieve within 60 minutes!
We are proud to introduce the second design in our Indigenous Book Box Range! We would like to show our respect and acknowledge the traditional custodians of this land, of elders past and present and we respectfully tell their stories as painted by DJ Mate. Australia s Indigenous people make no distinction between land and sea. Follow the safe passage...
This Magnetic Big Timer has a wind up 60 minute countdown and a strong magnet on the back which is suitable for use with a whiteboard, fridge or any metal surface around the classroom, home or office. 19cm diameter.
