Investigate and explore how a mother rabbit rears her young. Report and observe changes that occur over time.

Children care for new born rabbits (kittens) and their mother for 4 weeks. Children gain an understanding of the changing needs of the rabbits as they observe the dramatic changes that take place through the rabbits development. From a kittens total dependence on their Mother, right through to an independent rabbit.

Mother Rabbit and her bunnies

The Rabbit Rearing & Early Learning

Our focus on Science Foundations & complimenting the Australia School Curriculum.

Rabbit Rearing Objective: To introduce children to the basic health and nutritional requirements of an animal.

Biological Science
The Rabbit Rearing Life Cycle Program demonstrates living things grow and change and have offspring similar to themselves. Living things have life cycles and depend on each other and their environment to survive.

Children are taught the basic needs of the kittens, including a diet of food and water and the important duties and responsibilities of caring for a pet.

Natural & Development of Science
Children can explore and observe the rabbits using their senses.
Physical Science
Children can observe the way the rabbits move and hop around, depending on their stage of development, size and shape.
Use & Influence Of Science
Children develop an understanding of the daily needs of an animal for its survival. By caring for the rabbits and providing a suitable environment for them to thrive in.

Communication
We encourage children to communicate their observations and ideas in a variety of ways through oral discussion and direct animal interaction. Activity sheets available from our website.

What age group best suits the Rabbit Rearing

Preschool, Kindergarten, Child Care & Primary School Education from Foundation to Year 2. But!
The information & interaction can be enjoyed by all ages.

 

Little kids (as well as the grownups!) love the chance to cuddle and feed their favorite animals! We offer young children the chance to care for their very own pets.
Primary school children will love the opportunity to get up close and personal and care for the rabbits! The program fits in perfectly with the school curriculum, and can be a great teaching aid. Allowing the children to be interactive helps to develop their interest in animals, and this can be translated well to the classroom.

The Rabbit Rearing can be a fun experience for all ages, and is guaranteed to leave people talking about your event!

If you have a special request, please don’t hesitate to let us know!
