The Year 3 classes visited the Currency Creek EcoCentre on Thursday 13, 20 and 27 June as part of their Biological Sciences unit. Students engaged in a range of activities that focused on identifying the different features of living things and how we sort and classify them based on these features.
Students studied the birds found in the area and learnt how to identify different species. They explored why birds have different physical features and what this tells us about where they live and what they eat. Students also learnt how to identify different plants found at the site and spent time doing some revegetation work using local plant species grown in our nursery.
On the final day students had the opportunity to work with an Aquatic Ecologist to identify local fish species found living in Currency Creek.
During the excursions, students were involved in nature play activities, like cubby house construction and creating artwork as they spent time outside exploring the natural environment.
