This program can be delivered to meet outcomes explicit to subject areas or as part of an Integrated Unit of work across Design and Technology, Science and English. The central theme to the project is “How do we design exhibits at Taronga which support the Animal Welfare Charter and the Zoo’s vision to “Secure a Shared Future for Wildlife and People”. Through delivering integrated curriculum we strive to enrich student learning through providing rich, authentic and contextual learning experiences.
Examine the significance, perceptions and protection of an arid Australian environment and Sumatra’s tropical rainforests. Hear first hand from experts at Taronga Zoo whilst meeting native Australian wildlife, and then explore Taronga Zoo’s new Sumatran Tiger experience (opening mid 2017). Help your students learn how people can use places and environments more sustainably.
