Abstract: The Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority’s 2013 Reef Beat education series, the amazing Great Barrier Reef — let’s keep it great, includes a poster (best viewed and printed in A0 size) and curriculum-linked activity book. It takes students and teachers on a journey of why the Great Barrier Reef is amazing, both in beauty and scale, and highlights its importance as a national and international icon. Through this resource, you can explore the Reef’s environmental, social and economic values and attributes, Traditional Owner connections to sea country and how the Reef is managed. Activities in the book are linked to the Australian Curriculum Science and History (version 4.2) and Australian Curriculum Geography (May 2013). The science and history activities describe relevant content descriptions for the targeted year levels. The curriculum content was correct at the time of production (May 2013) but may change (check for current content descriptions). There is also a Year 11–12 Marine Science activity included in the activity book linked to the Marine Science Senior Syllabus 2013. The poster features a map of the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park and World Heritage area and key messages about the amazing Great Barrier Reef.
