Yr 2 excursion to Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary

11/08/2017

Students were involved in learning about animal life cycles and learned about their particular diets and habitats and saw up close a baby crocodile, a blue tongue lizard, a green tree frog and Spock the snake. Students then ventured to the Sanctuary’s infamous Free Flight Bird Show, which astounded the students with all the different birds they may see or have seen previously, from a cheeky pelican to the powerful wedge tail eagle. Students also got to go on an indigenous journey and experience firsthand how Indigenous people lived and survived. From making “fake fires’, splitting grass to weave baskets and painting themselves with symbols from ochre (ground up rock and water), they really got into the activities and left wide eyed and full of new knowledge, ready to implement these findings within up and coming classroom lessons. The day was full of fascinating animals, interesting stories and plenty of learning and this is all thanks to the people from Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary, who made it all happen.
