Stage 3 students are completing a unit of work on Animal Adaptations as part of the Science and Technology Curriculum for Semester 2. To enhance their learning they will be participating in a hands on, inquiry based learning experience at Field of Mars Study Centre located at East Ryde. 

With a focus on animal adaptations, the students will undertake a “clue-seeking” quest through the bush. They will seek out evidence such as scratch marks, droppings, fur, feathers and bones. They will be given cryptic clues provided by iBook’s, iPad’s and QR codes to guide their findings. They will then interpret their evidence, find conclusions and make a presentation to present their case to their peers to see if their conclusions are correct.
