How animals behave

Module Overview

Originated by: Dr Miroslava Korenova

How animals behave is the scientific and objective study of animal behaviour, usually with a focus on behaviour under natural conditions, and viewing behaviour as an evolutionarily adaptive trait.

Many naturalists have studied aspects of animal behaviour throughout history. Understanding animal behaviour can be important in animal training. Considering the natural behaviours of different species or breeds enables the trainer to select the individuals best suited to perform the required task.

This module looks at a range of animal behaviour and what it represents. Students are encouraged to use photographs and magazine editorials to support the activities in this module.

We will explore

  • Using photographs to observe animal behaviour
  • Animal behaviour – is it learned or innate?
  • What are behavioural triggers?
  • Poster making to illustrate animal behaviour
  • Observing spider web creation, a salmon run, turtle migration and more…


We are continously working to improve and update our material to ensure it is meeting the needs of students and teachers alike.

All modules are delivered to you via email through a downloadable link.

Our programmes include a range of learning materials to support both teachers and students in the classroom. Content wise, each module is different but some components are common to all to provide assessment tools for teachers and familiar references for students.

This module includes

  • Lesson plan
  • PowerPoint presentations
  • Observation of thoughts
  • Teacher assessment
  • Class activities

We believe that some topics are approached more powerfully by bringing in animation. That is why some of the topics have videos to illustrate the learning points
