Welcome to Perth Zoo

In this fun and interactive experience students discover the identity of a mystery creature by comparing animal groups and their coverings. An understanding of classification gives students a better appreciation of biodiversity within animal groups.

Overview

Who Am I is an introduction to classification. Students explore the ‘what', ‘why’ and ‘how’ of animal coverings through a hands on investigation of a mystery animal, as well as close encounters. In this education experience students make decisions about grouping animals using external features. An understanding of classification gives them a better appreciation of biodiversity within animal groups.
