How are animals similar and different to their offspring?
During this excursion Stage 1 students will explore the bushland in the Field of Mars Reserve to find examples of living things in various life stages. They will spot the differences between life stages of various plants and animals and describe how their external features change as they grow.
Using fieldwork methods to collect and identify invertebrates, students will view them up close using an iPad and an IWB to explore how they change as they grow.
Students will meet the centre’s phasmids, discuss their life cycle, and construct their own stick insect to take back to school.
Recommended maximum 6 classes per day.
