Story time

Our feature story this term is Billie's Nest.

It’s summer on Mount Kosciusko, home to Billie the Corroboree Frog. She searches for yummy insects all through the mossy bog, but something is missing; she wants to find a special nest to bring her young to life...

Nature craft

Create your own Southern Corroboree Frog by using natural materials. Then create a habitat and nest for it to live in. 

Follow the steps in the instructions or watch the video below to learn how. 

What other characters from Billie's Nest could you make from natural materials?

Perhaps a Guthega Skink, or a Flame Robin. See if your nature craft animals can go on adventures through their habitat!

Nature play

Learn more about your local wild areas through playing in nature. An amazing array of colours can be found in nature. For example, the Southern Corroboree Frog is black and yellow.

How many colours can you find in nature?

Download and print a colour wheel. Take the colour wheel outside and see what colours you can spot.
