About this resource:
This 60 minute lesson plan is designed to teach Year 5-6 students about the risks and benefits of location-based services.
The lesson plan is based on the short story, “The Galahs’ Close Encounter with the Kreeping Kestrels” which comes from the Australian children’s book The Surfing Penguin by Kim Maslin.
After reading and discussing the story, students complete a number of worksheet activities (with interactive options available). Answer sheets included.
