Our program then went on to recognition of plants, what’s edible and what is not.

 We discussed alternative lifestyles and cooking over campfires.

 

Being- Children are becoming confident and involved learners.

EYLF Outcome 4.4 – Children resources their own learning through connecting with people, places, technology, and natural processed materials.

We then built our own bush campfire so we could cook the food.
