Did you know that we share Earth with an estimated 5.3 million - 1 trillion different species? Our planet is so diverse that it makes it impossible to give an exact amount - who knows what is left to be discovered!
It is that endless possibility that keeps us fascinated! At ZooLab, we love uncovering and educating others about the diversity of our planet and all that lives there - from the depths of the Rainforest to the unforgiving polar regions.
Following on from October’s blog post, we have picked out 4 more fantastic ZooLab workshops to help you to explore this wonderful topic.
Charles Darwin - The Voyage Of The Beagle
Charles Darwin travelled from England to South America, then to New Zealand, Australia, and finally Africa on the HMS Beagle. This fun and exciting voyage inspired Darwin and his theories. You’ll get to meet some of our extraordinary animals, similar to species Darwin himself saw and recorded. This is an excellent workshop for classes learning about historical figures, evolution, adaptations, geography, and habitats.
We’re Going On An Animal Hunt!
This story-based workshop based on a classic children’s book takes children on a fantastic animal hunt! Their ZooLab Ranger will take them through grass, a river, mud, a forest and a snowstorm before coming face to face with an array of amazing ZooLab animals! Using animals, songs and rhymes helps promote language, physical, social and emotional development.
This hands-on, animal-handling workshop experience brings pupils face to face with classification. It is all part of an experiential and interactive learning experience in which introduces ZooLab animals that include vertebrates and invertebrates. Pupils explore different classes of animals so they can uncover their differences and similarities themselves.
Children get a fun introduction to invertebrates and classification. They get to question, investigate and learn about scientific discovery. This workshop answers all the big questions such as - What do minibeasts have inside them? Are there any similarities between our bodies and theirs?
