Designed for years 3 - 6
Frog bogs, kitchen gardens, nest box building and butterfly gardening; they all make up our Rewilding programs, designed to get your students outdoors and in touch with nature.
We are experienced in conducting Junior Landcare and Kitchen Garden Specialist sessions and we will develop unique programs particular to your area of interest or need. These sessions can be one-off incursions or part of an ongoing program or investigation and are often part of a sustainability unit.
We utilise students’ natural curiosity to drive discovery learning, as well as a range of teaching techniques to ensure maximum engagement, participation and interaction. We link our Rewilding program to other parts of our programs whenever possible, allowing students to use microscopes, examine creatures and conduct chemical tests.
The Biological Sciences curriculum covered in this incursion focusses on living things, their features, adaptations, interdependence and the physical conditions of the environment where they live.
We will work with you to develop a program that includes the curriculum objectives, cross-curricular links and your learning aims.
What others say
“Sam’s teaching expertise and passion for science has ensured every specialist session he’s delivered for us has been engaging, fun and educational. Whether it’s putting together a session as per our requested topic or a subject suggested by Sam, he has always hit the mark in assessing student capabilities, and the right mix of prac, theory and fun to keep the kids engaged whilst they learn. I highly recommend him for incursions in kitchen garden and science.” Carol, Kitchen Garden Coordinator, NPS.
