The Earth’s Environment: Eucalypt Forest – New!
How does the eucalyptus forest provide habitat for the ringtail possum and other native animals?
Students will undertake a bush walk traversing rocky outcrops through wet and dry eucalypt forests.
Through teacher-led and student-directed activities students will investigate and record the characteristics of the forest, evidence of animals and their interconnection with the environment.
Fieldwork tools will include sensory observation, invertebrate hunts and recording through sketching, mapping, watercolour, tallies and photographs.
This geography fieldwork day helps answer the Key Inquiry Question: How does the environment support the lives of people and other living things? with a focus on living things.
The program supports the Geography Teaching Framework: Natural Environments. It also strongly connects to the Science Living World content: ‘Living things, including plants and animals, depend on each other and the environment to survive.’
