Landscapes and Landforms  

Stage 4 Geography

Students will explore, identify and describe the features of the dominant landscape, investigate the human landscape including how the how the area is currently used, how it is valued by different groups and the impacts of changes over time on the landscape.

Plant Systems

Stage 4 Science

Students will work scientifically to study three distinctive vegetation types at Bobbin Head to answer the Key Question: What factors influence the different plant communities across landscapes? Working collaboratively in small groups the students will use scientific equipment to collect and compare data on the biotic and abiotic features of the identified vegetation communities.

NEW Mangrove Ecosystems

Stage 5 Science

Students will undertake a variety of scientific investigations of the abiotic and biotic features of the mangrove ecosystem and use observations to describe energy and material flow in this system. These investigations will assist in understanding the health of the estuary and both historical and current management strategies employed to conserve this important ecosystem.

NEW Geography Enrichment

Stage 5 Geography

The students will work geographically to study three distinctive vegetation types. Working collaboratively in small groups the students will use geographical equipment to collect data and compare the biophysical environment of the identified vegetation communities. Students will also undertake mapping and field sketches.

NEW Environmental Change and Management 

Stage 5 Geography

Students will conduct a Geographical Inquiry into changes over time in the management and use of the mangrove ecosystem at Bobbin Head. They will acquire, process and communicate Geographical information to answer inquiry questions about Aboriginal,1930s, current and future management of mangrove ecosystems and differing stakeholder perspectives.

NEW Environmental Change and Management – Microplastics

Stage 5 Geography

Students will conduct a geographical inquiry into contamination of the mangrove ecosystem at Bobbin Head by macro and micro plastics. They will acquire and process primary data using fieldwork equipment and share data collected with AUSMAP, a citizen science program. They will also view a midden site to understand Aboriginal worldview and management of mangroves.

UPDATED Biophysical Interactions 

Stage 6 Geography

Students will utilise geographical tools to increase their understanding of the nature and functioning of the four components of the biophysical environment by investigating two different vegetation communities: mangroves and dry sclerophyll. Students will then use what they have learnt to assess the environmental impact for a proposed development development.

NEW Ecosystem Dynamics – Southern Brown Bandicoots  

Stage 6 Biology Module 3,4 and Depth Study

To determine the suitability of a site to introduce fox mitigation, scientists must first learn about the animal and then find evidence of the presence of an endangered animal in an area. During the fieldwork day, students will collect scientific (biotic and abiotic) data to determine which of two potential wildlife camera sites is the more suitable for Southern Brown Bandicoot sampling.
