EYFS, KS 1. Early Years, First Stage.
Ages 3 - 7
DURATION: 45 mins - 55 mins
OVERVIEW: Go on an action-packed adventure through the rainforest layers with ZooLab’s expert Ranger!
Explore the layers to uncover a range of exotic critters. From stepping over snails on the forest floor to watching dancing stick insects in the understorey, seeing how snakes climb and tarantulas jump out of burrows - you may even get to meet a canopy-dwelling tree frog too. It’s all part of an approach that combines storytelling and drama to bring the rainforest to life, help children discover biodiversity and to get a first hand look at how what happens in the rainforest can affect us all.
