Kangaroo Beach Teaching Toolkit Teaching Resource
About this Teaching Resource
The Kangaroo Beach Teaching Toolkit is a water safety education resource for F-2 students and teachers. The resource contains eight lesson plans to use alongside school swimming lessons, as part of class inquiries into health and safety, or to address Health and Physical Education curriculum content in an engaging way.
Lesson plans correspond to key learning areas in the National Swimming and Water Safety Framework, addressing Hazards and Personal Safety, Entries and Exits, Flotation, Swimming, Underwater, Lifesaving, Rescue, and Survival Sequence. Each lesson identifies a relevant Kangaroo Beach episode and water safety message, lists comprehension questions for the class or individual students, and includes a student activity sheet related to the theme. The resource will improve or consolidate students’ knowledge of safe behaviours around water, empowering them to contribute to their own safety.
