Learning Object Details - Surviving in a habitat
Start: Who lives here?
Start: Who's for dinner?
Start: Platypus life cycle
Start: Alien life form
|Description||Work through a series of four learning objects about ecology. Explore a range of habitats to find out why particular plants and animals live there. Identify which features make them well suited to survive and reproduce in an environment. Consider how plants and animals fit in with other species as well as physical factors such as protection from weather. 1. Animals in a rainforest. 2. Animals in a billabong. 3. Platypuses near a stream. 4. Plants in mangrove swamps, cool rainforest, mountain slopes and arid land. Look up further information and answer questions.|
