NATIVE AUSTRALIAN WILDLIFE ADAPT TO THE ENVIRONMENT OF THE SOUTHERN LOST CITY

NATIVE AUSTRALIAN WILDLIFE ADAPT TO THE ENVIRONMENT OF THE SOUTHERN LOST CITY

The dissected sandstone plateau of the Southern Lost City of Limmen National Park provide a distinctive habitat for a range of native wildlife. This unit has a focus on survival and adaptation to this area. The Limmen National Park was proclaimed in 2012 and research is in its early years. Those with an interest in the natural environment who ventured into the area when it was used as for cattle raising (pastoral leases) made lists of wildlife observed. In the environment within and around the Southern Lost City they began to record that certain native species were increasingly difficult to sight. Coinciding with these observations were the increasing sightings of intruding feral animals such as cane toads, feral cats and feral pigs. Their conclusion was that the feral intruders were having an affect on the survival rates of native wildlife by habitat modification and food resource reduction. Future research into this situation will shed further light on these impacts. Of particular concern were the reductions of 3 species covered in this unit. They have reached the "endangered" list and were heading for extinction within this area. Of particular concern were sightings of feral cats. Though not yet numerous in this park their numbers were likely to increase and their efficient hunting and killing skills would place native bird and small mammal species under threat. The feral cat situation is covered in another unit entitled "The feral cat menace - impact on Australian native wildlife". This unit can stand alone as an introduction to the impact of feral animals on native wildlife. It cat be used to introduce the topic of tha considerable problem caused by the increasing population and spread of feral cats which are regarded as the top predator affecting native Australian wildlife. That unit will also consider programmes carried out by the AWC (Australian Wildlife Conservancy) to conserve and protect native wildlife of Australia and avoid (if possible)adding names to the list of species that have become extinct. The worksheets (colour and black and white) are included so that hard copies can be distributed.

Cleo Cat Secret Agent (in training) -  English Resources based on the Continents.

Cleo Cat Secret Agent (in training) - English Resources based on the Continents.

Cleo is a very clever cat who has been recruited to train as a secret agent whose mission it is to protect all life on planet Earth. To complete her training, she must visit each continent and complete a variety of activities and challenges. For each continent, there is a focus on a specific animal, bird or fish. This project began as I started to write texts for a reluctant reader. The texts were initially fact based but grew to include activities to develop their punctuation and writing skills, including description, poetry and diary writing. Two of the thirty-four activities require the students to use their data handling skills. The final activity is a simple board game which the students can use as a writing prompt. The resource includes a world map and a map of the continents as well as blank maps of each of the continents in which students can add their own information. (Access to atlases may be useful). Depending on their previous learning, most of the activities can be completed independently.

Compass directions at London Zoo

Compass directions at London Zoo

This lesson is suitable for children in KS1 and lower KS2. It is part of a wider unit about London Zoo and is an ideal preparatory lesson for a trip there. The engaging presentation first introduces children to compass directions. It then challenges them to describe the location of animals at London Zoo using north, east, south and west. In the activity, children describe the position of animals at London Zoo using compass directions. It is differentiated two ways: LA - Children have colour coded questions so they can locate animals quickly. MA/UA -Children have to find the animals themselves. In the extension activity, children are challenged to state the position of animals in relation to other animals (e.g. The owls are north of the gibbons). If you like this resource, please review it!
