Program Description

Students journey along the water’s edge, between volcanic walls, and among forest groves where they meet iconic native and exotic species. These budding naturalists will connect with their environment, use their senses to develop observational skills, understand the role of humans - including First Peoples - in ecosystems, and participate in storytelling and interactive games.

Big Ideas
  • Plants and animals have observable features.
  • Living things have features and behaviours that help them survive in their environment.
  • Living things have life cycles adapted to their environment.
  • Living things are diverse, can be grouped, and interact in their ecosystems.
  • All living things sense and respond to their environment.
  • Earth materials change as they move through the rock cycle and can be used as natural resources.
  • Everyday materials are often mixtures.
  • Evolution by natural selection provides an explanation for the diversity and survival of living things.
