Guide Available: MCI101.pdf
Growth and Changes in Animals focuses on investigating the distinct characteristics of animals related to appearance, behaviour, growth, and change. Students will meet and study a variety of different types of animals with a focus on wild animals that can be found here in Canada. We discuss the basic needs of all animals as well as compare and identify the main similarities and differences among various types of animals. The behaviours and adaptations that are important for survival are defined and discussed. Throughout the program, we recognize the importance of healthy human-wildlife interaction as well as recognizing the need for humans to protect animal habitats. Incorporated into the program is a discussion of various types of wildlife that have had and continue to play a critical role in the culture and history of First Nations people in Canada.
