We'll look at the plants and animals that live here, along with the human-built elements and their use. We'll discuss the important balance of needs this environment demands, and how this is achieved and maintained.
Using local materials and their mapping skills, students will design their own fun nature map of Bradleys Head.
In this active and hands-on geography excursion for Stage 1 students, Bradleys Head is brought to life. An awareness of place and the connection between people and place is fostered throughout.
