Science in the City 2014
This free Art Gallery of South Australia and Artlab Australia learning program provides opportunities for students in years 4-7 to connect with the Australian Curriculum: Science by examining how living things and their environments:
• are affected by each other
• are connected by structural features and adaptations that help them survive
• interact as food chains and food webs, and can be affected by human activity
Art Gallery of South Australia - In a guided session students explore the theme of Food for our future: Science feeding the world by viewing works of art in the Australian collection, and by investigating the science of food - its production, processing, security and nutrition.
