Incursions

If your school is relatively local to the Eltham area, Edendale Education can also offer a range of our activities for incursion, including:

  • Tale of the Creek (Story and role play with a water quality focus)
  • Growing Your Own Food / Food Miles
  • Soil Matters (The beauty of composting and worm farming)
  • Food Footprint (Environmental impact of what we eat)
  • Hands-on Veggie Gardening (in your patch)
  • Indigenous Plant Propagation and Planting (seasonal)
  • Eltham Copper Butterfly (Story and role play about this special endangered species)
  • Consumption Down! (Waste reduction hierarchy, smarter shopping)
  • What a Load of Rubbish (What goes in what bin and a fun recycle relay)
  • Buzzing Around (The amazing life of bees)
  • What a Load of Rubbish (What goes in what bin and a fun recycle relay)
  • Fast Fashion (Environmental impact of what we wear)
  • A variety of environmental art activities.

We also have access to several terrific short films that can be used in a discussion sessions with your class.

An incursion could be a one-off one hour session, or a rotating series of activities. For example, if you have three classes in your year level, we would come for several hours and run three activities.  

We can teach to a particular theme or a more general sustainability program (eg. a water, a waste and a biodiversity activity).

If you have specific curriculum needs that you would like us address, have a chat to us about how best to achieve this. We are very flexible and are happy to tailor what we offer to suit you.
