Geography - People live in places - Eddy the Dharug boy

Nature is important for many reasons, both to people and to wildlife. This Geographical Inquiry uses the story of ‘Eddy the Dharug Boy’ to focus students on the spaces and places around Brewongle. It helps them understand why these spaces are important and how we can look after them. The program includes Geographical Tools such as Maps and Fieldwork, with post-visit lessons and assessments.

Maximum 3 classes per day for this program.
