Not all lessons are in the classroom!

On a lovely, sunny, summer day, 260 students of the Biodiversity class set off to explore the geology of the Hallett Cove Conservation Park. The intention was to observe and collect evidence of Plate Tectonics and Climate Change, and then to think about these processes as significant factors in controlling biodiversity. Other themes explored during the day included change in landscapes over geological time, and the importance of preserving our natural heritage.

Students enjoyed their educational¬†outing, and learned a great deal about the earth’s history from a place not so far away!
