OVERVIEW: Join ZooLab on a festive adventure told through storytelling, rhyme, and animal encounters!

In this yuletide story, we join Father Christmas as he searches for the recipient of undelivered presents at the bottom of his sack. As he retraces his route to check everyone has a gift, we visit the homes of our animal friends to see their habitats and how they spend Christmas. 

The Last Present is an active-learning, story-based workshop for younger children, allowing them to contribute with rhyme and festive cheer.

 

Key Workshop Objectives:

  • Spread Christmas Cheer

  • Identify animals that live in different continents

  • Encourage listening participation and imagination

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.
