We at the Barcelona Zoo have designed a special educational programme for preschool students. They allow the youngest kids to learn more about their favourite animals.
In these workshops, the children will learn to tell the different animals apart and to observe them carefully. Furthermore, through stories and anecdotes about the animals in question and, in some cases, by imitating their characteristic sounds and movements, students will learn how these species live.
Defence of the environment and respect for animals is also fostered by their increased knowledge.
To identify the body parts of animals and their functions
To distinguish the outer layers: hair, scales and feathers
To learn which foods are best for each animal.
To distinguish how they move differently.
To introduce the concept of wild and/or domestic animals.
