Little Life

Investigate life cycles and ecological relationships

Hands-on biology workshop!

Your students will gain an appreciation of the complexity of life in this fun school science workshop when your primary classroom becomes a hands-on biology lab!

  • Check out our mini-beasts, are they male or female?
  • Learn about life cycles and basic ecological relationships between plants and animals
  • How do biologists track animals? What techniques do animals use to hide?
  • What are the parts of flowers? Your primary students will investigate these plus much more!

School Testimonials

St Andrews Primary Maryong

Students were very excited. Loved too many aspects - couldn't decide which was the best part. Very hands-on - all children engaged all the time. Excellent.

Dalgety Public School

I like the practical, hands-on nature (of the programme). The animal noises to tune the children in at the start worked well. Age appropriate and informative.
