Develop your class’s understanding of genetic, species and ecosystem biodiversity (Higher: 3.7) by focusing on our incredible cat species during a virtual tour. While exploring definitions and real-world examples, your class will embed their
understanding and create their own concept cartoons. They will also learn about threats to biodiversity (Higher: 3.8) and the distribution of organisms (SCN 3-01a) and ecosystems (Nat 5: 3.1).
Using real-world examples of animals at the zoo and park, your class will develop their understanding of mutations, (Higher: 1.6), natural selection (Nat 5: 3.4), speciation (Higher: 1.7), and physical, physiological and behavioural
adaptations (Nat 4: 3.5).
Using a unique blended approach, your class can gain access to a live virtual tour and our Animal Behaviour Hub to examine the complex structures (Higher: 2.6) and communications of primate families (Higher: 3.6) and other species.
Combining this session with our Hub enables your pupils to observe and record data on our animals for their own behavioural study (Adv. Higher: 2.1 & 3.2).
The session also demonstrates how RZSS’s on-site research allows us to improve welfare of animals in our care (Higher: 3.4).Find out more and book this tour
