Assessment Type 1: About Natural Environments
The Outdoor Education about natural environments assessment type is assessed by the school.
Students develop an understanding of environmental systems and issues of potential human impacts on natural environments through investigation of ecosystems and consideration of historical, cultural, and/or personal perspectives of at least one environmental area.
They explore and analyse human interactions with natural environments to build understanding of the balance between the human uses, potential risks, and conservation and sustainability of the environments.
