Australian Trail Tour: English as an Additional Language
Designed to support students with English as an additional language to learn about Australian wildlife.
Students will explore the Australian Trail with a zoo teacher to observe our incredible Australian native animals along the way. Students will discover the unique Australian habitats and environments and the animals who live there.
Our Australian Trail Tour is designed to give students with English as an additional language the opportunity to learn about Australian Wildlife and how we care for them at the zoo. Students will have the opportunity to observe animals in their zoo habitat and engage in hands on activities to understand what animals need to survive.
The program addresses the needs of students through:
- Adaptive, teacher-led activities
- Creating opportunities for student-led exploration and the chance to learn about the needs of animals and how we can care for them
- Information is presented both orally and visually to suit different learning styles and levels and the chance to interact with objects aids in student discovery
