More ZooVentures Classroom Visits - Live and Interactive at your School, Learning Centre
Choose a topic or we will tailor a session to reflect your theme or inquiry. Worksheets included for most topics to reinforce learning. Duration 45mins - 1 hour.
We look at how animals 'fit' their habitats, stay safe from predators and generally thrive and survive. With a 'focus on feet' slant we look at the paws and claws of a number of animals and see how they are all perfectly adapted to thrive and survive.
Journey through the Animal Kingdom
Take a journey through the animal kingdom and learn how scientists make sense of so many animals! We start with creepy crawlies and then meet fish, amphibians, birds, reptiles, and mammals.
Animals featured are stick insects, minnows, axolotls, blue tounge skinks, rose cockatoo, rabbits, and dogs.
This session features mice, chinchillas, tortoises, frogs, and newts. With the help of these amazing creatures, we illustrate the main reasons why animals become endangered and ultimately extinct - introduced species, hunting and poaching, habitat loss, and pollution. New Zealand examples included.
Learn about these fascinating reptiles and how they live. We look at some of their adaptations and why this ancient group continues to thrive. There will be bearded dragons, blue tongue skinks, leopard geckos, and a huge water dragon to meet.
