This program introduces students to the workings of an Open Range Zoo and the daily tasks of a Zoo keeper. What is involved in managing the care of such incredible animals?
Students meet animals up-close and learn about their diet, their enclosure requirements, and daily activities. Students will also get an opportunity to take on the role of 'Mini keepers', planning enrichment activities for the zoo animals to help keep them mentally and physically active within their enclosures and reflect how they would spend their time in the wild and perhaps think about how they could keep their pets active at home.
Keep Active addresses AusVELS levels F-6 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.
