Discover and observe living things in Kings Park

Using observation skills in a woodland habitat, discover the living things that call Kings Park home. Use guided investigation skills to help understand the requirements all animals need for survival. Search for invertebrates, evidence of animals and identify different habitats.

After recording observations, students share findings with their class and discuss what might happen if habitats change.

'This is the best excursion I’ve ever taken the children to. Highly engaging and constant opportunity for active participation and exploration.' - Year 1 Teacher
