TEACHING and LEARNING OUTCOMES
The follwing outcomes are based on the NSW Board of Studies K-6 Syllabus documents and reflect just some of the many teaching and learning possibilities available from a study of Wetlands. Science Mathematics, Human Society and Its Environment, Creative Arts , English, Religion
Students will know and understand that:
people organise spaces by assembling and
arranging components to meet particular needs.
people alter their environment in response to natural conditions.
all living things are different.
living things grow, reproduce, move, need air, take in nutrients and eliminate wastes.
the senses are used to receive messages from all around.
Earth and its Surroundings
time can be measured through change
and regular events.
the weather can have a powerful effect on
some living things change according to
people create specialised environments to meet specific needs.
structures are built from natural and processed materials and components.
environments are sometimes modified to fulfil new and different requirements.
plants and animals live in environments that supply their needs.
change occurs throughout the lifetime of living things.
living things depend on other living things to survive.
Earth and Its Surroundings
most natural resources are limited and so
need to be used wisely.
there are benefits and problems associated
with human changes to the physical
people try to control the conditions in the environments they build.
people live in communities and build environments to service their common needs.
both aesthetic and functional factors need to be considered when people make changes to their environments.
living things show variation within a species.
the activities of people can change the balance of nature.
groups of living things have changed over long periods of time.
Earth and Its Surroundings
there are many physical phenomena which
change the environment.
there are various parts to the physical
environment, eg stars, planets, earth, air
environments on Earth have been affected
