Creature Ark brings our animals to your classroom or learning space.
There's nothing to beat a " hands on " experience where students can hold, touch and feel, discovering the wonders of our creatures from around the world. We are fully COVID19 risk assessed for school visits and also offer an engaging online option via a delivery channel of your choice. Great for homeschooling.
Fostering care, respect and understanding, children of all ages can learn about our animals and their habitats whilst creating lasting memories.
Our workshops are tailored to meet learning requirements and designed to link in with the "Life processes and living things" element of the National Science Curriculum. Our team includes STEM ambassadors who have presented with animals at numerous events.
The forum of the workshops encourages discussion amongst students and inspires creative writing for further work in class. There is lots of opportunity for the students to ask questions and reinforce their understanding of the natural world around them.
We offer many varied workshops including:
Evolution and Inheritance
Our living world
Animals and their young
Learn and draw
Creative writing stimuli
