Class Work Booklets and Teacher’s Notes

There are currently five interdisciplinary class work booklets available to support your visit. These include pre- and post-visit activities as well as a series of questions to complete whilst at the zoo, each with accompanying teacher’s notes.

These class work booklets were developed by a local teacher through an Excellence in Education Business Links (EEBL) project funded through West Lothian Council. If you would like to discuss tailoring a session to these or another class topic, please contact us in advance prior to your visit.

Teacher’s notes, including learning outcomes and learning intentions, can be downloaded below. The booklets will be emailed to the school when arranging your class visit.

To book or discuss your trip today, email bookings@fivesisterszoo.co.uk or call 01506 870 000.
