Humans may be the greatest threat to wildlife, but animals must still contend with each other for survival

The diverse range of amazing adaptations animals have to obtain food and avoid becoming food themselves are explored first hand in this session. Classification skills are applied to sort animals into groups based on their dentition and further classified into consumer types by placing into a food web that demonstrates the flow of energy in the African savanna. Students will learn how a zoo community conservation campaign is working to reduce the impact introduced species have on a food web in the savanna to help fight extinction.

 

Eat or be Eaten addresses AusVELS levels 7-10 standards.  It supports the cross-curriculum priorities of Sustainability and addresses achievements in the domains of Science, Interpersonal Development, Personal Learning, Civics and Citizenship, English, Humanities, Communication and Thinking Processes.
