The Year 2s visited our Currency Creek Eco Centre on Thursday 30 of August and Thursday 6 of September as part of their Biological Sciences unit. Students engaged in a range of activities that focussed on the life cycles of plants and animals.
There was a specific focus on the life cycles of insects and the changes which happen during the process of metamorphosis. As part of this, students looked at local butterfly species and the caterpillar food plants different species rely on. Students learnt about the ways we can attract butterflies to our home gardens and they spent time planting out plants that will provide food for the caterpillars of local butterfly species.
During the excursions students were also involved in nature play activities, like cubby house construction and creating artwork as they spent time outside exploring the natural environment.
