Paris Climate Withdrawal Last week, the United States announced that it's pulling out of the Paris Agreement, a big plan designed to fight climate change. The news caused a massive reaction around the world. But what actually is the Paris Agreement and what might happen once the United States withdraws? Koala Concerns Scientists in New South Wales are worried about the effect rising sea levels and deforestation are having on Australia's koala population. We'll take a look at the latest research and find out what can be done to help this iconic Australian species. TEACHING RESOURCES INCLUDED Learning Areas - Science / Science Understanding / Biological sciences: Living things, including plants and animals, depend on each other and the environment to survive Year 4 Living things have life cycles Year 4 Living things have structural features and adaptations that help them to survive in their environment Year 5 The growth and survival of living things are affected by the physical conditions of their environment Year 6 Interactions between organisms, including the effects of human activities can be represented by food chains and food webs Year 7 Scientific knowledge has changed peoples' understanding of the world and is refined as new evidence becomes available Year 7 Uluru Street View For the first time, students will be able to virtually walk around Uluru, after Google's Street View site recently captured the massive rock in the heart of the Australia. The filming was done with permission and advice from local aboriginal elders and some sections of the rock weren't captured due to their cultural beliefs. Next week, we'll find out more about those beliefs and find out why this landmark holds such significance in this country.

The BTN Welcome Book - Cover Artist announced Last year, Behind the News asked all Australian kids to draw pictures of welcome for all of the young refugees and migrants that arrive here to start a new life. Incredibly, more than 12,000 of you took part. We then selected about 100 of those beautiful pictures to be printed into a special book. On the 20th of June, we will officially unveil the book that all of you helped create. And as thanks, we'll also post a free eBook version on our website for you to download and enjoy. But first, in next week's show, we will reveal the BTN Welcome Book's front cover design and introduce you to the talented young artist who drew it.

President Trump/Hijab Day/Terms and Confusion/School of the Air/Farm Living/BTN Investigates President Trump Over the holidays, Donald Trump was inaugurated as the President of the United States. And in the weeks since, his decisions have made headlines around the world. The reason he’s been able to make so many big calls in such a short time is because he has a special power that many other leaders don’t have - Executive Orders. We’ll find out all about them next week. Hijab Day Over the holidays, the Muslim religion was in the news a lot too. While some of that attention focused on Donald Trump’s recent visa restrictions for people from some Muslim nations, in Australian there was also controversy around an Australia Day billboard featuring two girls wearing hijabs. The 1st of February was World Hijab Day, so we asked one young girl to tell us what a hijab is and why she wears one. TEACHING RESOURCES INCLUDED Learning Areas Health and Physical Education: Describe how respect, empathy and valuing diversity can positively influence relationships Years 3 and 4 Civics and Citizenship / Knowledge and Understanding / Citizenship, diversity and identity: How a person’s identity can be shaped by the different cultural, religious and/or social groups to which they may belong Year 4 Civics and Citizenship / Civics and Citizenship Skills / Communication and reflection: Reflect on their cultural identity and how it might be similar and different from others Year 4 Civics and Citizenship / Knowledge and Understanding / Citizenship, diversity and identity: How Australia is a secular nation and a multi-faith society Year 7 How values, including freedom, respect, inclusion, civility, responsibility, compassion, equality and a ‘fair go’, can promote cohesion within Australian society Year 7 Terms and Confusion Many kids use social media sites like Instagram and snapchat. But did you know they are all not allowed to be used by people under 13? That is just one of the rules written in the terms and conditions that you agree to when you install them. But experts say there is no way kids could read let alone understand all of the things they are signing up to, so they are campaigning for them to be simplified. TEACHING RESOURCES INCLUDED Learning Areas: Digital Technologies Processes and Production Skills: Plan, create and communicate ideas and information independently and with others, applying agreed ethical and social protocols Years 3 and 4 Plan, create and communicate ideas and information, including collaboratively online, applying agreed ethical, social and technical protocols Years 5 and 6 Plan and manage projects that create and communicate ideas and information collaboratively online, taking safety and social contexts into account Years 7 and 8 Health and Physical Education / Personal, Social and Community Health / Being healthy, safe and active: Identify and practise strategies to promote health, safety and wellbeing Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 ABC ‘Back to School’ feature: School of the Air Most Australian students have now returned to school for another year. But for the kids in this story, that experience was very different. They live on a remote property in Queensland, so their classes are actually held in a small building next to their home. We asked them to explain what it’s like to do all of your lessons over the net and how their school day is different to yours. Farm Living A young girl has found a fun way to teach people about what it's like to live on a farm. She and her Dad record parody songs and upload them to YouTube. And they've been getting heaps of attention. We invited Aimee to tell you all about it. BTN Investigates Have you seen or heard something in the news you'd like explained?

Russia Open the newspaper or turn on the TV news and it’s pretty likely you’ll hear Russia mentioned. The country has hit the headlines repeatedly this year over accusations it has ties to the new US President and his administration. That’s big news because not so long ago, the two countries were bitter enemies. This week we find out more about Russia and its tumultuous relationship with the west. International Women’s Day: Women at Work Next week the world will mark International Women’s Day, which celebrates the awesome achievements of women all around the world. But it’s also a day to remember the past inequalities they have faced too, especially in the workplace. So in our next episode, we’re going to step back in time to find out what it was really like to be a working woman, before discovering some of the problems they still face today. TEACHING RESOURCES INCLUDED Learning Areas: History / Knowledge and Understanding: Days and weeks celebrated or commemorated in Australia (including Australia Day, Anzac Day, and National Sorry Day) and the importance of symbols and emblems Year 3 Experiences of Australian democracy and citizenship, including the status and rights of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples, migrants, women and children Year 6 Balloon Ban Have you ever let a helium balloon drift off into the sky? Or popped one outside and left the remains? Well Zoos Victoria say those two actions are incredibly dangerous for many birds, animals and sea creatures, because many of them mistake it for food. So now they are campaigning for balloons to be banned outside.
