Event description

Analyse and compare primates to reveal humans’ closest living and extinct relatives, evolutionary trends and what it means to be classified as Homo sapiens.

This Zoos Victoria digital program supports the VCE Biology Unit 4 curriculum and is free for all Victorian schools. It includes a 30-minute online workshop and an optional teaching guide filled with classroom activities. 

While not a tour of the zoo, online workshops give you direct access to a Zoo Teacher and unique content. Each workshop is hosted on Zoom. You will not need a webcam or microphone – type your questions into the Q&A box. 

Students will learn:

  • Anatomical and behavioural characteristics of mammals, primates, hominoids and hominins
  • Processes that underpin speciation of primates
  • Construction and use of phylogenetic trees as evidence for relatedness of species
  • How to compare DNA sequences
  • How to collect and analyse behavioural observation data

Online workshops are held on four Wednesdays in 2023 from 9:15-9:45am, and will have the same format and content each time.
