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.
