Reflect on Lesson


  1. In the first term, Julia Invernizzi from One Planet SA shared a lesson with us on this theme. Our Enviroclub children were fully engaged and had so much fun with the interactive activities while learning. Her theme covered wetlands as well.
    We will definitely use some of the ideas as well as suggestions above

    1. Thanks for the comment, that is great to hear! I like the idea of focusing this activity on a particular ecosystem (e.g. wetland as Julia used) and going more in-depth on the animals found there.
