Toowoomba Grammar (Australia)- Vasant Valley Collaborative Learning Effort
9th May, 2016
The children of class 7 B and Toowoomba Grammar School will work collaboratively on a series of joint lessons that will be held between the two schools.
The introductory session took place on Thursday, 5th May 2016 through Skype.
The collaborative course will be a combination of Geography, History and Social Studies focusing on both an Indian and an Australian river system:
We will research about the geographical aspects of both river systems (the Ganga catchment in India and the Murray-Darling system in Australia)
The traditional historical and cultural significance of both river systems to India and Australia.
The current issues faced by both river systems:
- The issue of pollution affecting the Yamuna in Delhi (and subsequent effects on system health).
- The issue of coal gas fracking and drought affecting the Condamine in Southern Queensland (and subsequent effects on system health).
