Early Stage 1: Backyard to Bush Tour

Early Stage 1: Backyard to Bush Tour


Your students will join a Zoo Educator and set off on an exciting adventure from the Aussie bush, through a working farm environment, and into an urban backyard. They will discover how each place is unique and each has a special purpose. Students will identify how these places meet the needs of living things and why it is important that people take care of them.
