Science Safari : Year 7 gets cosy with Reptiles up Close

IGS students recently participated in an unforgettable Science class.

In a hands-on and interactive learning experience, our students had the thrilling opportunity to get up close and personal with live, cold-blooded reptiles!

Under the guidance of Brett from Reptiles Up Close, students were introduced to a diverse array of reptilian creatures, each with its own unique features and characteristics. From the slow and steady movements of the turtles to the sinuous elegance of the snake, from the tiny tree frog’s vibrant colours to the awe-inspiring presence of a baby crocodile, our students were captivated by the rich diversity within the reptile kingdom.

This immersive encounter wasn’t just an animated class adventure; it was an essential part of their Term 3 assessment task on biological classification. By observing and interacting with these remarkable animals, students gained a deeper understanding of the key traits and attributes that help scientists classify and categorise different species.

Not only did this experience spark curiosity and engagement, it also allowed our students to witness firsthand the wonders of the natural world. They had the chance to hold and touch the animals under expert supervision. Direct, hands-on engagement with such fascinating and beautiful creatures will undoubtedly leave a lasting impression.
