Zoo School

Outdoor lessons with a zoology teacher!

The Zoo School is an educational offer in the Zoo Cottbus and a fascinating biology lesson outdoors. Exploring, watching, listening, smelling and even touching - the zoo changes in to a class room. Together with children and teenagers we explore the fascinating animal kingdom. We offer variety of topics, which we discus in advance with teachers. The zoo lessons are good extension to the biology and ecology curriculum. The most effective way is to combine the visit to the zoo with the current topics discussed in the school in order to repeat what the pupils know already and build up more knowledge and practical experience upon.

Fee: Only the zoo entrance fee

Proposed topics:

  • From heads to toes - how the animals are build
  • Farm animals
  • Exotic pets
  • Animals from distant forests
  • Invertebrates
  • Habitat adaptation
  • Endangered species
  • Role of the zoos
  • Behavior
  • Ecology

in order to optimally use the 60-90 minutes long lesson in the zoo, we meet somewhere in the park. The size of a group is limited to a size of a class.
