Your house probably looks very different to a tree! But just like a house gives you somewhere to live, trees provide a home for lots of different creatures. You’ll be hunting for how many different creatures you can see in a tree and then create a graph of them.
Safety advice: If you are unsure about the type of insect or animal you have found, investigate with your eyes rather than your hands!

Learning@Home from Cool Australia
Learning@Home resources are designed for parents and teachers to use with children in the home environment. They can be used as stand-alone activities or built into existing curriculum-aligned learning programs. Our Learning@Home series includes two types of resources. The first are fun and challenging real-world activities for all ages, the second are self-directed lessons for upper primary and secondary students. These lessons support independent learning in remote or school settings.
Cool Australia’s curriculum team continually reviews and refines our resources to be in line with changes to the Australian Curriculum.
