Teaching Activities 

8NE2A:  Observe a variety of living things in a range of situations

The aim of this activity is to provide students with opportunities to observe living things in a range of different environments. This could be done through the use a range of different videos of living things in different environments. These could include a dog drinking from a bowl and wild dog drinking from a lake, a giraffe eating from someone’s hand at the zoo and a giraffe eating the trees in the wild, someone watering a garden with a hose and the rain falling in the bush. Teachers would make observational statements to draw student’s attention to what they are observing.
