Stage 2 Year 3-4
Surround your students with the wildlife and amazing scenery Symbio Wildlife Park has to offer!
Through observing the habitats, climates and animals, students can examine close-up how important natural vegetation and the earth’s resources are to the environment, animals and people. They will learn about the ways environments are used by people of different backgrounds, including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Isander Peoples, and how we can work together so sustain and preserve our earth’s precious resources.
Students will have the chance to explore Australia’s great outdoors, observing the climate, natural vegetation and native animals of Australia. Students will be involved in team building activities such as bug catching, fishing, exploring our gorgeous coast on a secret coastal bushwalk, and test their knowledge through the Ranger Jamie Olympic Games. Through our experienced Rangers’ interactive presentation with museum-grade taxidermy animals, students will have the opportunity to understand the importance of the environment and more.
This in-depth excursion allows students to explore both sides of Australian history, and understand the advent of European colonisation from an indigenous and European perspective. They get to put themselves in the shoes of historical figures in the very place where Australia’s history changed forever.
