During Term 2, the Year 1s explored the concept of living things and their habitats through the Big Idea, ‘By looking after our environment, all living things can have happy habitats.’ The students researched endangered Victorian animals and learnt how the community can help to save their habitats. The students would love to tell you how you can help!
The Regent Honeyeater is endangered because we are cutting down trees. Put rubbish in the bin and pick it up if you see it. You can recycle cardboard and clothing. You can also recycle paper and plastic. You can even recycle plastic bags and pens and stationary. Recycle your food scraps like we do at school.

The Pygmy Possum is endangered because we are wrecking their habitats. Don’t cut down trees because animals will die because we are taking away their homes and their food and water to survive. They have habitat loss because of us! Stop cutting down trees for house and roads!

The Rock Wallabies are endangered because of us. If we cut down their trees, replace them by planting new ones. If we use paper, use both sides and recycle it and then we won’t have to cut down habitats.

We need to save the Bent Winged Bat because they are endangered. They are getting disturbed and we are wrecking their homes. We need to save them by saving energy like turning off lights because people have to dig massive holes in the ground to get coal and animals have nowhere to live.

The Smokey Mouse is endangered because we are stepping on its home. Make sure you do not step off paths in case there are animals and look out for habitats.
Did you know all of these animals are endangered because of us!
