Course Description

In this program, students will investigate various animal life cycles and what differentiates them from each other. Through meeting some of our native animals, students will explore the different ways animals grow and change throughout their lives. In addition, students will learn about the differences in paternal care and will determine why some animals live in large groups or families and why others have adapted to live solitary lives. They will explore the benefits of both group and solitary living and identify how multi-cellular organisms contain systems of organs carrying out specialised functions that enable them to survive and reproduce.
