Ages 1 - 5

DURATION: 45 mins - 55 mins

OVERVIEW:  Join ZooLab on a festive adventure told through storytelling, rhyme, and animal encounters! Join Santa as he searches for the recipient of an undelivered present in his sack.

Why learn through storytelling?

Using storytelling as a mechanism in teaching involves structuring learning around a narrative. It helps children (and adults) make sense of issues and topics by engaging them in a story, making facts easier to remember and participants more open to learning.

The benefits of learning through storytelling does not stop at increasing knowledge of the subject area - storytelling encourages creativity, expands vocabulary, increases attention span and helps to reinforce morals.
