Wetlands and the West

Grade 5 - Science

Discover the history and significance of wetland ecosystems during the settlement of the West and the vital functions they perform today. Students are introduced to the flow of water from precipitation to its entrance to the water table, and some of the local flora and fauna found along the way. Your class will investigate invertebrate life by pond dipping in our own Bissett Wetlands. The Newalta Learning Labs add another dimension to the discussion on diversity and adaptation with a hands-on “Build a Bug” activity, where students create their own aquatic creatures.
