Eucalypt forest

This unit of work focuses on earth’s environment: eucalypt forest, a significant environment.  It describes examples of habitats in the forest and how they meet the needs of living things, in particular how plants are used by animals.  It also provides examples of a food chain in the forest.

Students examine the importance of natural vegetation and natural resources to the environment, animals and people and learn about the ways people value environments, including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples.

During the day there is a mix of teacher-led and student-centred activities which are explained on mini task cards. The students stop in at least four places on the walk where they select one or more of the tasks to complete independently in that location.  A bag of equipment is provided and each student receives an activity journal and map.
