Stage 1: Backyard Buddies

Stage 1: Backyard Buddies


Just by exploring living things in our local environment, we can learn so much. During this workshop students will meet a range of local native Australian animals and collect and identify garden invertebrates. Students will learn how different places provide for the needs of living things and how they can help by creating habitat for wildlife. 

More information regarding syllabus outcomes and learning activities before and after your Zoo experience can be found in the learning resource.
