Sexual reproducation is more than a cellular phenomena – there are many, complex processes that take place leading up to and following conception. In this program, students use a combination of observation, story-telling and investigation to explore how sexual reproduction fits into the lives of Yukon’s wildlife. The program focuses on the reproductive cycle investigation of:
- Primary and secondary sex characteristics to determine sexual dimorphism:
- Mating behaviour in through story-telling and exploring our own connection with the land.
- How a fetus is brought to term (includes examining a bison fetus).
- A visit to the Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre takes students behind the scenes for hands-on exploration of how mice raise young (includes handling mice).
In Fall/Winter this program takes advantage of animals in fall rut.
Teachers are responsible for Bus/transportation:
