Students will be able to implement minimal impact principles to minimise erosion and damage to flora and fauna in an
outdoor setting
Students will be able to communicate and contribute to classroom discussion to enable a positive learning environment.

Footprint Test Activity

This activity requires
small groups of
students to try a
“footprint test” on a
number of different
surfaces. Each group
will share with the
others what impact
their footprints had on
the different surfaces.
A conclusion will be

about which surfaces
