Exploring Perth's Banksia Bushland

An activity sheet designed to support students learning about the Banksia woodlands of Western Australia has been developed by members of the Urban Bushland Council.  Lesson plans, suitable for primary school age children, are provided in this section. There are many other ways that the sheet could be used to help in the study of our natural environment.  Some further suggestions are included at the bottom of the page.

Subiaco Primary School - Pre-primary  Drawings 


Pre-primary children at Subiaco Primary School produced drawings of Forest Red-tailed Black Cockatoos after a cockatoo enthusiast, a grandmother of one of the children in the class, spoke to the class about black cockatoos.


The children are aged either five or six years; their drawings show a very good understanding, particularly of the red tail feathers.
