Woodland Warriors - Stage 3

Students will become Woodland Warriors as they explore, investigate and communicate the features and characteristics of the protected Cumberland Plain Woodland. They will collect primary fieldwork data – such as temperature, wind speed, and direction, discover human influences on the woodland, and complete mapping exercises. They will also engage in a stakeholder roleplay to present their arguments on the use of backburning and hazard reduction in the woodland.

This excursion supports the Factors That Shape Places strand of the Stage 3 NSW K-10 Geography Syllabus.
