Feathers, phasmids and leaves

Feathers, phasmids and leaves excursion

Science and technology

What is that? How do you know? What features does it have? These questions and more will be explored as students learn about classifying living things. During this excursion Stage 2 students will look for evidence on a bush walk, collect invertebrates and make recordings of living things and their observable features.

Students will conduct a hands-on investigation to determine what invertebrate groups are found in the Field of Mars Reserve. Collected specimens will be examined using magnifiers and classified using a classification key. Students will also get up close with phasmids to create a scientific drawing highlighting their amazing features.

Recommended maximum 4 classes per day.
