DUE TO THE COVID SITUATION THE DISCOVERY SPACE IS CLOSED

Self-guided Excursion

Your group will spend two hours independently exploring Early Start Discovery Space. You will be briefed by a Discovery Space Educator and supported with materials, including a map outlining our schedule to ensure you maximise your time across all of our experiences.

Where's the Bear? – Excursion/Incursion

The Where’s the Bear Experience Lesson includes the following activities:

  1. Book Reading: Children participate in a very active storytelling of “We’re going on a Bear Hunt.” Children are encouraged to use musical and dramatic play as they bring sounds of the landscape to life.
  2. Teddy Bear Hunt & Craft: Children get creative as they make their own “clue finder” to use as they become detectives, finding clues around the Space in search of our very own Discovery Space bear.
