Bring Australian scrublands to life with our paper model!
Semi-arid scrublands are found around the desert heart of Australia. Our model will look at two types of scrubland - mulga and mallee. It will show many of the unique species that live there, their adaptations, their interactions and how they depend upon one another for survival.

First, your students make their model using the colourful parts. Then, they use it to look at how organisms are adapted to survive in semi-arid scrublands. Next, they learn about ecosystems, habitats, consumers and producers, food chains, food webs and energy pyramids for this ecosystem. The impact of invasive species is also considered.
