On Friday 13th March, the Grade 3 cohort went to Healesville Sanctuary. We all had a fantastic day! Here are some student reflections on what they learned from our Excursion:
That Koalas sleep 18hrs of the day.
Eagles have the longest wingspan.
We need to use recycled toilet paper to save birds.
The possum was an endangered species.
That koalas eat eucalyptus.
There was a bird that had 2m long wings.
Koalas move very slowly.
There are different types of kangaroos.
That wallabies are endangered.
That if a diseased Tasmanian Devil fights another, it will pass on the disease.
I want to help Tasmanian Devils fight back.
That Eastern Qualls are nocturnal.
That some animals are so endangered that you can only find them in two places.
Possums go into the birds nests and eat the eggs in Tasmania.
That little birds barrow down in the trees. We need to stop cutting down the trees.
That Tasmanian Devils bite each other and then they get lumps on their bodies.
