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-based educator seeing our incredible Australian native animals along the way. Students will learn about the unique Australian environments and learn who lives 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. Explore a range of objects to understand what animals need to survive and learn about how we meet their needs at the zoo.
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
