Stage 2 Excursion

Dear Parents and Caregivers,

Stage 2 students will be attending an excursion to the Australian Museum on Monday 1st July. This is an exciting learning opportunity that will compliment and support our Science studies on Living World. Students will gain a greater understanding of the classification of our unique animals (invertebrates and vertebrates), their features and adaptations within the Australian environmental context. Through investigation students will understand, explore and identify the specific features of Invertebrates including insects and spiders, and have the opportunity through a variety of “hands on” activities to experience the role of scientists throughout their session.

The special features and adaptations of Vertebrate Australian fauna will be showcased, especially exploring the various structural features which have enabled their survival in their natural habitat.
