Cycles of life
From birth through to death all animals have a life cycle, but are they all the same?
An animal’s journey through life can see many changes. Some animals experience stunning transformations while others follow a steadier path.
Our zoo educator will introduce the students to some incredible animals at the Melbourne Zoo Discovery Centre. By observing a snake, a monkey or a wombat, students understand that different animals grow in different ways.
Students learn that not only does each stage of life impact the next, but human activities can also have an effect on the survival of wildlife.

The Cycles of Life learning program addresses Victorian Early Years Learning and Development Framework outcomes: Birth to 5 years and AusVELS levels F-4 standards. It supports the cross-curriculum priorities of Sustainability and addresses achievements in the domains of Science, Interpersonal Development, Personal Learning, Civics and Citizenship, English, Humanities and Thinking Processes.
