The Zoo go to school Tour
For those schools that would like to host an activity at the school itself, or that may have problems travelling, we offer you the possibility of coming to you so that we can meet your needs. We will design the experience depending on the fields you would like to work with and your interests, as well as the age group of the students in question. We will bring all support materials needed: audiovisuals, biological materials and others. We generally plan sessions of up to two hours per group. Please contact the Department of Education to specify the subject matter and organisation required in each case.
Length: 2 hours
Start time: TBD with the school
Depending on the subject selected, we will send the suitable information so teachers can work with students before the visit from our educator.
What have we learned?
Depending on the activity done at your school, we will send the proposed activities to carry out after the visit and with regard to the area of discovery of the natural and social environment in order to evaluate the learnings.
For the teacher
Given that this is material for all school ages, with quite different cognitive development levels, and that students’ development from the start to the end of the school year also changes greatly, all information and suggestions on assignments that we offer are logically designed so that you can use them in the way you deem must suitable. The activity can be completed or reduced how you like, adapting it to the age and knowledge of the students in question.
