A cross curricula approach to teaching adaptations 2016


proudly presents a Professional Learning program for Years 5 & 6 teachers:

A cross curricula approach to teaching adaptations

Tuesday 6th December, 2016

Time: 9:30am - 4:00pm

Venue: GTAC, Melbourne

Join us in an exploration of the amazing and varied adaptations of bees and the flowers that they pollinate as we showcase learning resources developed with a cross curricula focus touching on science, mathematics, creative and critical thinking and design and technology.

This full day program was developed in collaboration with Dr Ken Walker of Museum Victoria. Ken is a world leading expert in bee biology with an infectious enthusiasm for his research into bees. He will provide rich narratives and authentic insights into the importance of bees to our lives and raise a contemporary issue relating to challenges that bee’s face and how this will affect our economy and society.

This presentation is followed by a series of interactive workshops where you will use inquiry based investigations to explore the connections between bees and flowers and how they have co-evolved for survival.

Resources will be available online for use in your classrooms.

This is a full day program: 9:30am - 4:00pm
