Now that’s “edu-tainment”
Peel Zoo takes education very seriously. However, we also think it should be fun. That’s why we help schools with what we call “edu-tainment”. Our goal with “edu-tainment” is to support teachers in the delivery of a variety of educational subjects. These subjects might include Research Skills, Science, Animal Care, Ecosystems, Conservation, English, and even the Arts. Peel Zoo values Education, Animal Care, and Conservation. What’s more, we believe the best way to nurture these values in children is to offer them hands on, practical, and very real experiences. This approach really motivates student learning. The experienced staff at Peel Zoo offer animal based activities that range from observation, animal care, safe animal handling, and facts about each animal and the ecosystem in which they live. If you are interested in incorporating Peel Zoo “edu-tainment” into your curriculum, we suggest you look at our Incursion and Excursion pages.
