'Charles Darwin - A Voyage of Discovery' teacher resource book

The Charles Darwin - A Voyage of Discovery Teacher Resource Booklet was the result of a collaboration between ASTA and the Australian Biological Resources Study (DEWHA).The book was distributed to all Australian primary and secondary schools to celebrate the 200th anniversary of Charles Darwin's birth and the 150th anniversary of his work, On the Origin of Species. The book formed part of the 2009 National Science Week schools kit.

The Booklet, along with related resources, are available from the Australian Biological Resource Study website.
