Bush Discovery Excursion


Are your students interested in fungi, curious about our native animals or fascinated by creepy crawlies? Bush Discovery is a hands on nature-based experience for Kindergarten and Foundation students set in a local forest environment. Students have the opportunity to investigate the forest, identifying the basic needs of living things and find out where and how their needs are met. While exploring the role of living and non-living things in the forest, students will identify how they are interconnected. Learn about the features of a tree and the living things that can be found among them. Students will consider how they can care for forest environments and why they are important.
