Wool and the land

The Learn About Wool resources provide an ideal opportunity for Year 5 students to investigate the influence the natural landscape has on the human characteristics of a place.  During this study they will develop a greater understanding of why wool production in Australia is carried out in the well-defined ‘sheep–wheat’ zone of southern Australia.

The following curriculum-based resource package includes a variety of interactive resources, including downloadable PDF factsheets, posters, age-appropriate videos and websites.
