Bushfire Education teaching
and learning resources for
early childhood settings,
primary and secondary schools

Developed by the Victorian government in response to the findings of the 2009 Victorian Bushfires Royal Commission, the Bushfire Education website provides teaching and learning resources to support bushfire education in early childhood settings, primary schools and secondary schools. The Bushfire Education website includes teaching and learning activities grouped under the four themes of learning about, preparing for, responding to, and recovering from bushfires. All teaching and learning activities have been aligned to either the relevant Victorian Early Years Learning and Development Framework outcomes or the Victorian F-10 curriculum.
