Melbourne Zoo’s pedagogy aligns with best practice approaches for Middle Years and has a strong focus on exploring, collaborating and problem solving. The natural balance program develops an understanding of how living and non-living things form relationships of interconnectedness and interdependence. Students will collaborate to investigate the relationships in a forested habitat and explore how human activities can affect these interactions.
Students will have the opportunity to make personal connections with animals from the ecosystem they have explored, develop a deeper understanding of the dynamics of an ecosystem and partner with Zoos Victoria in supporting our conservation campaign Wipe for Wildlife.
The natural balance learning program addresses AusVELS levels 4-7 standards. It supports the cross-curriculum priorities of Sustainability and addresses achievements in the domains of Science, Interpersonal Development, English, Humanities and Thinking Processes.
