Place-based and inquiry programs improve students’ understanding of the environment by allowing them to explore, build connection with and care for their local natural places. Our Primary school education programs are designed to:
- Develop a sense of wonder, curiosity and respect for protected areas and the people, environments and species they support.
- Establish and build upon students’ knowledge of nature and our place within it.
- Improve understanding of the history and living cultures of Aboriginal people.
- Help students recognise what they can do to help make a difference to their local communities.
- Create informed, responsible and active young citizens who care about and contribute to the protection of nature.
Park Explorers encourages students to discover and care for their natural spaces through place based inquiry learning. The program is designed to engage upper primary school students.
Animal hero literacy resources help young learners to love where they live, develop connections between people and places, and understand how to care for both habitats and species.
