Schoolyard safari and invertebrates

Schoolyard safari and invertebrates excursion

Science and Technology

Where do invertebrate and small vertebrate animals live and what are their features?

During this Stage 1 excursion the places in which invertebrates and small vertebrate animals live and their role in natural environments will be emphasised. Students will complete a number of sensory activities on a bushwalk through the reserve.

Using simple collection equipment students work cooperatively to investigate what invertebrates live in the branches and what invertebrates live in leaf litter. Special features and adaptations of the invertebrates will be observed and explained. Students use paper clay to create small models of invertebrates based on their observations.
