As part of our inquiry topic, the grade three students visited the Barwon Heads Estuary Heritage Centre, commonly known as the “Lobster Pot”.
Maddie, who works at Barwon Coast, met us at the Lobster Pot and shared lots of interesting information about how we can help to look after our coastline.
The students were keen to learn and participated enthusiastically in the informative session. We discussed the different types of rubbish that can affect our local environment’s flora and fauna. We investigated how we can:
- Reduce the amount of rubbish we use
- Reuse some items of rubbish instead of throwing it away
- Recycle appropriate items of rubbish.
Here are some photos from our visit…
The Lobster Pot is a wonderful resource for Barwon Heads, with lots of learning opportunities available for all members of the community. Thank you to Sophie’s mum, Shara, for walking with us…we luckily avoided the rain!
