Child education

We at the Barcelona Zoo have designed a special educational programme for preschool students. They allow the youngest kids to learn more about their favourite animals.


In these workshops, the children will learn to tell the different animals apart and to observe them carefully. Furthermore, through stories and anecdotes about the animals in question and, in some cases, by imitating their characteristic sounds and movements, students will learn how these species live.


Defence of the environment and respect for animals is also fostered by their increased knowledge.

What animal am I? Workshop

A game of questions to help children learn about a specific animal. Where does it live? What does it eat? How is it born? They answer these questions with the aid of magnetic boards and cards. When they work out which animal it is, they go and look at it in real life!
