Caring For Living Things (EYFS)

Caring For Living Things (EYFS)

EYFS, KS1; Early Years, First Stage.

Ages 3- 11

DURATION: 45 mins - 55 mins

OVERVIEW: A very important rule for living things is that they need to stay alive (or else they wouldn’t be living things)!

This workshop emphasises what we need to do to look after animals, plants and the planet. Exploring the diverse requirements of a range of ZooLab animals, we discover that often creatures need the same core things to survive; food, water, oxygen and protection/shelter.

Using active learning techniques and building on prior knowledge this value driven show in teaches respect for all living things.
