Primary Programs

 

Explore the relationships between living and non-living components of a forest ecosystem and how these are affected by the local environment. Walk through different forest types – exploring the changes, the adaptations, and the influencing factors, and investigate evidence of leaf damage by invertebrates… get up close to some decaying wood samples to discover invertebrate habitats… develop some mapping skills and explore human connections to the environment as you plot your journey on prepared maps – all this and more…

 

Our Primary programs include both in-class and field-based experiences supporting the Science, HASS and Design and Technology curriculum and cater for students from K – 6.

Programs are designed to introduce a number of new concepts e.g. ecosystems, forest types, living and non-living things, life-cycles, producers consumers and decomposers, adaptations, the use and sustainable management of natural resources…

We also introduce the use of maps as a vehicle to develop the students forest interpretation and mapping skills. Investigate wood in our daily lives, explore innovations in design and the future use of wood/fibre products. Students understand changing forest environments and are encouraged to understand the interconnected nature of forests and people.
