Investigate: cane toads

This investigate unit is designed to help students understand cane toads and their threat to the Australian environment and agricultural production. Why some animals are to be protected and others need to be eradicated.

The resource includes:

  • Teacher guide with answers (appendix 2)

  • Student workbook (print or electronic version)

  • PowerPoint presentation to use in delivering the activities (includes links to websites and videos suggested in the learning activities)

  • The NSW Department of Primary Industries cane toad flyer is available to download from this [link]

  • A Biosecurity Warrior image to share with students who complete the unit - if you would like stickers to add to student's completed workbooks email us to let us know how many students you have completing the unit.

The links below give you access to the teacher guide, student learning journal (in pdf or Word files so you can choose to print it to be completed by hand or complete electronically) and a PowerPoint presentation for you to use in delivering the unit. 

We hope you enjoy the program, feel free to contact us by email (schools.program@dpi.nsw.gov.au) at any time.

The Biosecurity Warrior loves my work
