‘Interactive Adaptation Trail’ is a new way for your key stage 1 group to visit as much of the zoo as possible whilst still engaging in an interactive learning experience with our Learning team.
As a class teacher, you will be provided with a map route around the zoo that will allow your class to see as much of the zoo as possible. At three predetermined animal enclosures, you will meet your Learning officer for a short interactive activity. Join us for demonstrations, obstacle courses and the chance to investigate objects from the natural world!
Each of these activities will last about 10 minutes and will be run just for your class when you arrive. So that you can make your way around at your own pace, the interactive activities are designed to be drop-ins so there is no set time for you to arrive, just a time frame when the activities will be running. If another group is already with the Learning Officer, your group can use this time to watch the animals in the enclosure—there won’t be long to wait.
