Stage 2: The Earth's Environment

Stage 2: The Earth's Environment


In this workshop students will examine the climate, vegetation and native animals of Australia and Sumatra. They will learn about the importance of habitats for animals and people and discover the ways people value environments, including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples. Students will investigate how people can use places and environments in a more sustainable way and how our choices impact on these places. The concepts discussed in this workshop can be strongly reinforced when visiting Tiger Trek at Taronga Zoo Sydney.
