Stage 6 Biology: Maintaining a Balance

Join us in a workshop with some carefully chosen animals that will allow your students to:
  • Compare responses of Australian ectothermic and endothermic organisms to changes in the ambient temperature and explain how these responses assist temperature regulation.
  • ·Analyse information from secondary sources to describe adaptations and responses that have occurred in Australian organisms to assist temperature regulation.

Stage 6 Biology: Evolution of Australian Biota

Stage 6 Preliminary Biology Module

Our ‘Evolution of the Australian Biota’ workshops will bring to life many of the outcomes from this unit. Meet animals up close with our fully trained Zoo educators to help your students understand the strategies and adaptations that our native animals display to survive in Australia’s ever changing environment.
