We are heartily inviting all students and their teachers in one of our education programs which we created for you and are available all the year round. The entrance fee for students is CZK 65, teachers – free entrance.
We prepared educational programmes for nursery school children, and elementary and secondary school pupils. Each programme is divided into two parts, with the total time spent on a programme equalling that of three 45 minute lessons. The first part takes place in the audio-visual hall in the zoo’s administration building. The presentation by a zoo staff member, which includes a question and answer session, is enriched by demonstrations involving live animals and natural products, PowerPoint presentations and videos. The children complete the second part of the programme outside in the zoo grounds, filling in a worksheet at the end.
