Our Year 5 girls had the pleasure of attending the Melbourne Zoo on Monday, 29 May 2023. They explored different trails seeing animals from all over the world and were prompted to notice different structural and behavioural adaptations which help the animals to survive.
The students also got to touch and examine different artefacts and get their questions answered by the friendly and knowledgeable Melbourne Zoo staff!
Our Year 5's are working on a Science presentation at the moment where they have to select an animal and discuss its adaptations, and after attending the Zoo excursion, we could see it really brought to life their learning. The students were very eager to back to get working on their presentations afterwards.
