Our Healthy Habitats and Adaptations Program is aligned to the Grade 1, 4 and 5 Australian Curriculum. In this workshop students will explore a secret underwater bug world!
By the end of this incursion students will be able to answer:
What is a habitat?
What are some examples of habitats found in our creek environments?
What features makes an aquatic invertebrate (waterbug)?
What adaptations do waterbugs have to survive in their environment?
Students have the opportunity to catch LIVE waterbugs in their very own creek sample! Other activities include use of stereo / USB microscopes, healthy habitats activity, preserved waterbugs and wetland educational books and puzzles.
Our sessions always conclude with a demonstration on waterway pollution and a discussion on conserving our waterways.
