Explore and observe living things in Kings Park
Using guided investigation skills in a woodland habitat, students discover the living things that call Kings Park bush home, and understand the things they need for survival.
Search for invertebrates and evidence of animals (sounds, tracks, feathers etc), and identify different habitats. After recording observations, students share their findings with the class and discuss how the habitat may 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
By the end of this program students will:
- Discuss the needs of animals, and how pets and animals in the bush have different needs
- Use their senses to conduct an inquiry into the animals that live in bushland
- Use scientific equipment safely
- Identify minibeasts based on their observable features
- Share their discoveries with the rest of the class
- Listen to a story and think about what might happen if the bushland habitat changes.
