Event Overview: In this lesson students will learn about a variety of Australian Environments and the plants and animals that live there. They will also explore the ingredients required to create habitats and increase biodiversity in their school grounds.

Students will use the interactive whiteboard to construct a virtual habitat for native animals using flowering plants, grasses, ground covers, rocks, logs, etc.

To conclude students will plant native grass seeds in pots. These can be used as the basis for a re-vegetation project at school.

This lesson can be incorporated into any study of biodiversity and habitats. It can also be used as a planning session to guide construction of native gardens in school grounds.
