Zarconi’s Magic Flying Fish Curriculum Support

Zarconi’s Magic Flying Fish has application across the curriculum and is used as a set text in both primary and secondary schools.

Edenhope Primary School, a small country school in rural Victoria, used Zarconi’s Magic Flying Fish with students in Grades 3 to 6 for an entire term of integrated activities including teaching Australian history and geography, circus skills, clowning activities and transforming their classrooms with circus-style decoration.

Niddrie Secondary College in Melbourne use Zarconi’s Magic Flying Fish as a set text for Year 7 students. Over several years, English teacher Michelle Crofts and her colleagues created an in-depth integrated unit of work (Maths, Science, ICT and English & Performance Arts). This unit has been designed to cover the new DET,  VELS, POLT and assessment guidelines. Click the download link to view the full set of teacher’s notes.
