Our urban environments are constantly undergoing physical change, making conditions for local wild life somewhat unpredictable.

This workshop explores some of these changes and their impacts, both positive and negative for local wild life who also happen to call these spaces home. Does the physical environment affect the survival of living things? Who might benefit and why?

Student experience

Students will investigate:

  • How the physical environment has changed over time 
  • The impacts these changes can have on local wildlife
  • Whether there are winners and losers. 
  • Real world solutions to help redress some of these changes.

Skills development 

This program links to the following strands of the Western Australian Curriculum:

Year 6

Science 

  • Biological sciences: The growth and survival of living things are affected by physical conditions of their environment (ACSSU094)
  • Nature and development of science: Science involves testing predictions by gathering data and using evidence t develop explanations of events and phenomena and reflects historical and cultural contributions (ACSHE098)
  • Use and influence of science: Scientific knowledge is used to solve problems and inform personal and community decisions (ACSHE100)
