Science Week Begins With A Focus On Biology


Today the Prep students undertook an animal biology workshop planned and run by Scarlett 7B, Vaani 7B and Mahnoor 7C. The year 7’s began by presenting students with an inquiry question: “What would happen to sharks if there were no more fish in the sea?” Students concluded that sharks would start to die out due to starvation. This lead on to the learning intention of the workshop which was to appreciate the importance of all animals on a food chain.

Students observed a food chain and were impressively able to conclude the repercussions of different plants and animals being removed from the food chain. Students also observed the physical traits of various animal species through specimens that our very own laboratory has. The students actively contributed to discussion and left our year 7’s feeling surprised and impressed at the contributions of the students. Well done Preps!"
