Lesson summary

In Australia, we get used to seeing pictures of landscapes completely burnt by bushfires. It can be hard to believe that these places could ever recover. But just like a graze on your knee eventually heals itself, or a really tough day can get better, natural environments can gradually regenerate, on their own and with our help. In this activity, you will go on a silent walk through nature, using your senses to notice new growth and life.
