The Earth's environment - Eucalypt forest

The Earth’s environment - Eucalypt forest incursion


What are the geographical features of a eucalypt forest? How does the eucalypt forest provide habitat for native animals?

During this Stage 2 incursion students will undertake a bush walk through bushland areas located near their school.

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.

Recommended maximum 6 classes per day.


Local bushland close to your school or local area.
