On-Site at Quantum Victoria
Students gain an understanding of classification and how to order and compare their minibeasts (invertebrates) and recognise external features using a dichotomous key. Students demonstrate the knowledge acquired throughout the day by creating and editing a short nature documentary about a minibeast, making links between its external features and how they relate to its diet and habitat.
An extension module complementing the onsite program is available for completion upon your return back to school. This module consists of a student workbook and teacher resource book with solutions.
Asynchronous (Self Delivery)
