Course Description

From birth through to death, all animals have a life cycle, but are they all the same? Through up-close encounters with some of Australia’s native animals, students will explore the different ways animals grow and change throughout their lives. All living creatures 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 and observe and identify the difference between life cycles.
