Program Details

Grade One Life Systems: Characteristics And Needs Of Living Things

The Characteristics of Living Things: How Do We Know It’s Alive?
Students learn about the characteristics of all living things. Specifically, that living things move, reproduce, consume energy, grow, and die. We explore these characteristics of life and the variation in these characteristics. For example, students learn about the many ways that animals move through their environment.

Exploring The Needs of Living Things

This lesson focuses on the basic necessities of life: energy, water, shelter/space, and air. Students learn how animals meet these needs in their environment and how changes to the environments affect the survival of animals.

 

Grade Two Life Systems: Diversity, Growth, And Changes In Animals

Ultimate Survivors: How animals adapt to changes in their environment
The world can be a tough place to live. All organisms must be able to respond and adapt to changes in their environment. Many species have specialized features and adaptations that help them to meet their needs. Animals respond to changes in temperature, water availability, food availability and more. Students learn how different vertebrates respond and adapt to these seasonal changes as well as how different characteristics help various vertebrates survive and even thrive in their environments.

Life Goes On… and On: Animal life cycles – Birth, Growth, Reproduction, and Parental Care
Just as there is variation in the appearance of vertebrates, there is variation in the life cycles of vertebrates. This lesson focuses on the life cycles of vertebrates and introduces students to the many different ways animals are born, grow, reproduce, and care for their young.

Student Expectations: Identify the stages of a life cycle; identify variation in life cycles of different animals; discuss differences in the way animals care for their young.

Vertebrate Variety: Exploring The Characteristics of Vertebrates
Students learn all about the five classes of vertebrates and compare their characteristics. Reptilia’s staff describe the physical characteristics, behavioral characteristics, and life cycle characteristics of reptiles and amphibians and compare them to birds, mammals, and fish.

Student Expectations: Describe the characteristics of all five classes of vertebrates; understand the difference between a vertebrate and an invertebrate; demonstrate an understanding of the differences between the five vertebrate classes.

The World Around Us: Living and Surviving
This lesson combines the other three lessons, touching on how various vertebrates live and survive in their environment, using their senses and other adaptations to find food, avoid predators, and meet their needs, as well as looking at how their life cycles suit their lifestyles.

Student Expectations: Explore the variety of ways animals respond and adapt to environmental change; demonstrate an understanding of the underlying reason for the differences in the response of different types of vertebrates to changes in the environment; recognize the characteristics of the major vertebrate groups.

 

Grade Three Life Systems: Growth And Changes In Plants

Plant-Animal Interactions
The natural world is a strange and wonderful place where all living things are intricately linked to each other. The interaction and interdependence between plants and animals is an excellent way to introduce the concept of interconnectedness to students. This lesson helps students to identify the similarities between plants and animals and it introduces them to the interactions between these two types of organisms.

Student Expectations: Identify the similarities between plants and animals; identify differences between plants and animals; discuss interactions between plants and animals.

 

Grade Four Life Systems: Habitats And Communities

Adaptations: The intricate link between organisms and their habitat
All organisms face the challenge of obtaining enough energy and water to survive; avoiding predators, and getting enough air. These are the primary challenges organisms face, which is why adaptations usually help animals cope with one of these challenges. This lesson focuses on adaptations and the relationship between an organism and its habitat.

Student Expectations: Identify the basic elements essential for survival in any habitat; understand the variation in the availability of these elements in different habitat types; understand the many ways in which animals cope with the challenges in their habitat.

 

Humans and Habitats: What is our role?
Human activities have an effect on the environment. Our day-to-day activities affect the air we breathe, the water we need to drink, and organisms we depend on for survival. This lesson focuses on humans the interrelationship between our activities and habitats.

Student Expectations: Demonstrate an understanding that humans alter and change habitats; understand that changes are both positive and negative; identify ways in which we depend on organisms in our environment; demonstrate an understanding of what humans do to protect habitats.

 

Habitats and Communities: The Essentials
The diversity of animals and habitats in which they live is astounding. Students learn about the essential elements of any habitat and they begin to understand the interactions between organisms within habitats. The concept of food chains be introduced and discussed.

Student Expectations: Identify the basic elements essential for survival in any habitat; understand the variation in the availability of these elements in different habitat types; demonstrate an understanding of the term community and the interactions that occur within a community of organisms.

Grade Five Life Systems: Organ Systems

Organ Organization and Integration
How do the organs of other organisms work compared to ours? How are organ systems integrated to perform as one unit to sustain life? These are some of the questions explored in this lesson. Our lesson is a tour of the organ systems found in all terrestrial vertebrates highlighting variation in the structure and function of the major organs and systems. Students gain a better understanding of the way these systems work together.

Student Expectations: Demonstrates an understanding of the function of the five major organ systems; investigate the role of each organ within the systems; explore the variation in organ systems in different animals.

 

Grade Six Life Systems: Diversity Of Living Things

Classic Classification: How we organize the living world?
Scientists classify organisms according to a specific guideline established by Carl Linnaeus, a Swedish biologist who lived in the 1700’s. This classification system is used to organize species into workable groups of living things that are similar in many ways. This lesson focuses on biodiversity, the methods of classification and the characteristics of animals in the five vertebrate classes.

Student Expectations: Demonstrates an understanding of scientific classification; identify characteristics suitable for use in scientific classification; identify and classify animals from the five vertebrate classes; understand the difference between vertebrates and invertebrates.

 

Grade Seven Life Systems: Community Interactions

Ecological Essentials: The Delicate Balance
The diversity of animals and ecosystems in which they live is astounding; however the basic elements of these ecosystems remain the same and the natural laws that dictate the interactions within the system are predictable. This lesson focuses on the basic concept of ecology and introduces students to the idea of ecological interactions.

Student Expectations: Identify the basic elements of an ecosystem; understand the interactions that occur within an ecosystem; demonstrate an understanding of the terms community, population, abiotic, and biotic.

 

Humans and Ecosystems: How do we fit in?
Humans do not operate outside the laws of nature. The laws that govern ecological processes apply to our activities. This lesson focuses on the links between our actions and the health of ecosystems. Students apply their basic knowledge of ecosystems to better understand the role of the human population in ecological processes.

Student Expectations: Demonstrate an understanding that humans alter and change ecosystems; understand that changes are both positive and negative; identify ways in which we depend on ecosystems; demonstrate an understanding of what humans do to protect ecosystems.

SPECIAL EDUCATION PROGRAMS

Reptilia provides the same program as our regular education lesson and tour package but we have Educators that have previous backgrounds working with Students with special needs.  A few regular customers here at the Zoo are Reena, Community Living, Deaf/Blind association, Autism Of Canada and Elementary / High School special needs classes.  We accommodate students of all ages with mobility, language, development and mental disabilities.  These programs are usually shorter in length with much more hands-on interaction. The cost is the same $9.50 plus tax per student (minimum cost $190.00) and no fee for any staff that attends.  We are a full Wheel Chair accessible facility!
