Course Description

All living beings have a beginning and an end to their lives and experience stages of growth and change. In this program, students will explore the characteristics of living things by observing and identifying the difference between life cycles. Through up-close encounters with some of Australia’s native animals, students will explore the different ways animals grow and change throughout their lives, as well as exploring the various ways the environment impacts growth, survival and adaptation of living things.
