On Thursday 21 June, Year 5 set out on an excursion into the bush to investigate a mystery. What was the mystery? Well, Juliane (who works at the Field
Of Mars) was taking a morning stroll out in the bush when she came along....a stomach! Who is the evil predator that killed the poor little prey? That
was what Year 5 had to find out.
Each group was given an iPad to take a photo of anything that might provide clues to who the predator was or who the prey was. Once the investigating was
over the students went to the lab to compare their photos to the charts provided and make a prediction on who the predator and prey was. Using iMovie
each group made a video to prove their prediction was correct.
So was the mystery solved? Did Year 5 ever find out who killed the little Ringtail Possum? Was it Mrs Peacock with the spanner in the Ballroom? No,
it was the Powerful Owl with his beak in East Ryde. Eeek!
