Upper primary education

Learning what and how to observe will take us to a unique world. Our visits and workshops are designed for your students and will help you to start or to complete the work done in the classroom. All of our activities are taught and run by experienced Zoo educators. All activities are approximately two hours long and, for visits, include a guided tour of the grounds, while workshops tend to be conducted entirely in the classroom.

Some of our workshops are done at the Zoo Farm classrooms. For this reason, we ask that the school group arrives at the classrooms some 15 minutes before the agreed time so that they are all ready and in their places by the scheduled starting time. 

The Department of Education is always open to your suggestions. So please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any comments or would like us to prepare you a custom visit.

We do sincerely thank you for filling out the surveys we give you at the end of your visit and we encourage you to make any suggestions or comments, both about what you’ve liked and about what you think may be missing or deficient, as they greatly help us to improve our activities.


This course, aware of the difficulties that many schools have to organize outings, we want to make it easy for you! Ask us about any activity, since the Zoo also comes to the School.
