Farmer Joe has left us some jobs to do! Compost your food scraps, feed the emus and the worms, help dig a garden and look for his chickens. Kids will learn about sorting waste for composting, how plants and animals work together and help us to provide food. They will play educational games and even plant their very own seed!
KOALA’S @ CAMP
SCIENCE: Living world – Needs & features of Living things
GEOGRAPHY: Features of Places
Can we find Big Russ, one of our local Koalas? Students will be taught how to track a koala and use basic maps and navigational tools in an attempt to find Big Russ and his mates among the grey gums. Students will learn about the features and needs of koalas. They will explore the features of places where Koalas live by sketching a koala habitat, identifying gum trees and discovering what koalas need for future survival. As part of our local conservation project, students will be involved in hands-on planting or re-generation of the grey gum plantation used for Koalas kept in zoos. We also have exciting adventure climbing activities that will allow the students to experience the world of the koala first-hand.
