Ranger for a day

Ranger for a day excursion

Science, Geography, Cross Curriculum Priorities

Dressed as rangers Stage 1 students will be introduced to Field of Mars as a home to Sydney’s native animals. Students will go on an adventure to investigate our backyard buddies and their habitats, searching for birdlife and other amazing bush animals.

But wait a minute, it seems wildlife need our help! Using specially created maps, the student rangers will locate habitat areas that need to be improved. Rangers will engage in fun and creative activities that will enhance and create habitat for our wildlife.  

This excursion has been designed to provide fun and engaging experiences for students that lead to improved habitats. Students will plant a seedling, water and mulch, and help build an insect hotel.
