WHAT WE DID
Kimberlin Education developed 20 lesson plans, organised into 4 units of work to be taught to each of the four stages across early years and Primary school. Each unit of work comprised of 5 detailed lesson plans, with accompanying Interactive Whiteboard resources which taught age-appropriate content relating to the dangers of lead in the Broken Hill community.
Kimberlin also produced an incursion, scripted and resourced, to be delivered in schools and community centres to Primary students in the Broken Hill area. This incursion was taught to the facilitators at the Broken Hill NSW Environmental Protection Authority in a professional development setting, and then piloted in a local school alongside the lesson plans for each age group.
THE REPORT CARD
The Broken Hill LeadSmart program has recently been released into schools and has generated plenty of positive feedback from parents and teachers alike.
