In pairs, small groups or individually, students choose an animal to thoroughly study.
Students choose a species to study and when they arrive at the Zoo they choose an individual animal to study within that species.
Experience tells us that it is best to choose and animal that is not too shy, diurnal, and identifiable within a group.
Download the Animal Study booklet and the appropriate ethogram for students to record their findings in. Students can create their own ethogram as part of an extended study.
