Ironbark Students go to the Zoo!
Last Wednesday, our Ironbark students went to the Melbourne Zoo to learn more about Conservation and what we can do around our local area to help our vulnerable native wildlife. Local Legends encourages students to discover the fascinating stories of some unique local animals. Students were able to plan their own journey to compare these animals and discovered the role that humans play in their stories. Whilst learning about these Australasian species, students investigated the importance of wildlife and discovered how valuable it is to share their stories. By the end of the day, students had learnt how the Wurundjeri people share knowledge, care for and respect wildlife, and how they can help Melbourne Zoo teach others about endangered animals. Classes will now choose an animal and design a nesting/feeding box for them to put around our school. Another great example of STEM learning happening at KFPS.
