Early Stage 1: Science Unit
During this science unit of work students will take a look at Australian Indigenous bush tucker foods. Students will look at where foods come from and explore the life cycle of plants. They will have the opportunity to recognise and explore how humans, animals and plants stay alive and healthy. The main focus is on Indigenous Australian bush tucker and how plants grow and survive. Students will also have the opportunity to explore, observe, experiment, understand the difference between controlled and varied environments, stages of a plant’s life cycle, plant and observe the growth over the term and record findings and predictions. Students will also take a look at how Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders used signs from nature to know when to eat certain foods. At the end of the unit students will create an artwork around bush tucker.
