This area is divided into several subjects that are closely inter-related – Botany & Zoology, Observational and Experimental Science, Physical and Social Geography, and History. The curriculum provides a great framework for inquiry and investigation of ‘big ideas’ – Where did we come from? What is our place in the universe? How are we the same or different from other forms of life on our planet? How do plants and animals adapt to their environment? How can we become good stewards of our environment and contributors to a peaceful world?
