The Bunnings incursion is always a very hand-on experience. In this particular incursion children learn :
- Interdependence of all living things – we have to care for our plants to get veggies, plants need to be watered and fertilized, and that weeds compete with plants.
- Reasoning and discovery – Life-cycle of plants, effect of environment on the growth and development of plants.
- Origin of food – that food is part of nature.
- Health and wellbeing – children learn to maintain their personal wellbeing as they work outdoors. It is a fun and productive activity in which they work as a team.
