From bay to beyond science excursion

Stage 4 science excursion

Location

Kamay Botany Bay National Park, Kurnell.

The excursion from the bay to beyond supports the living world content strand of Stage 4/5 science. From the bay to beyond allows students to gather data in the field whilst learning about the unique ecosystems of Botany Bay. Students will explore both the coastal rock platform and coastal woodland ecosystems.

This unique program combines perspectives of traditional Aboriginal land management and sustainability integrated with hands on science skills and content.

Students will describe adaptations of living things to factors in their environment; explore the effects of bushfire, drought and flood on Australian ecosystems, use keys to identify living organisms and scientific equipment to measure abiotic factors.
