In The Garden - Ecosystem Range

1 piece - approx. 10 x 29 cm

3yrs +

Kids love bugs! And our collection of 14 ecosystem information boards are a wonderful introduction to common insects and reptiles found in Australian backyards and how they help our gardens to grow. Each board is engraved, using NSW Foundation Font, with details of the insects name, where they live, what they eat and an interesting fact about them.  The beautiful images are printed on the outer side of the perspex, giving them a unique 3D effect. Timber stands are also included in the set, so you can have them sitting up on display or explore them on a lightbox.

Why not take them out into the garden to help discover the real thing! Using these boards is a great way to teach children about a gardens’ ecosystem – how a community of plants, animals and smaller organisms live, feed, reproduce and interact in the same area.
