Endangered Animals Expo!

On Tuesday this week some Middles students put on an expo in our Discovery Centre to raise awareness about endangered animals. This came out of the students Inquiry into the environment and how they could help animals.
"When I got a break I went and found a few surprises that I hadn't been told about . I went into the Dugong part of the expo and saw a youtube video of Dugongs in hats. It was quite funny and raised awareness because it was fun". - Angus
"I thought that the whole expo was a great idea. All the people who did it made it a good way to learn." - Maddy

  1. Thank you for inviting me to the expo. I enjoyed the pygmy possum presentation and the beautiful dugong dance. Well Done Middle S.

  2. What a great way to share and learn what you found out about endangered animals. I really loved that you had many different ways of informing people about these issues - from presentations, Youtube, activities etc. I was impressed that you had students from Grade 6 right through to Prep at your exhibition. This shows that there is a great interest in this topic as well as a real respect and support which acknowledges that a lot of hard work and time went into this exhibition. Well done on another great example of how you can share your learnings with the whole school as well as spread your findings further by providing handouts/activities which were brought home and shared with the rest of the family at our house. Congratulations to all involved and to everyone that participated and supported this exhibition. Suzi

  3. Hi Middles,

    Congratulations on your wonderful expo...it's such a valuable thing to teach others about the wonders of our animal world and how to protect their lives. You certainly attracted a large and interested audience.

  4. Looks like a great expo Middles, and it looks like you had some follow up activities for people to do as well. Keep those endangered animals alive!!
    The more people who know, the more people who will care. Keep up the good work and research.
