Year 2 students visited our Currency Creek EcoCentre on Thursday 14, 21 and 28 March as part of their Biological Sciences unit. Students engaged in a range of activities that focused on the life cycles of plants and animals.
There was a specific focus on the life cycles of insects and the changes which happen during the process of metamorphosis. Students looked at local butterfly species and the plants different species rely on. Students learnt about the ways that we can attract butterflies to our home gardens and spent time planting out plants that will provide food for the caterpillars of local butterfly species.
During the excursions students were also involved in nature play activities, like cubby house construction and creating artwork, as they spent time outside exploring the natural environment.
