Event description

Description

Animal behaviour is an innately fascinating and engaging subject that is taught in both science and psychology and throughout the key stages. In this workshop, Charlotte the education officer from the Association For The Study Of Animal Behaviour (ASAB), will provide a number of practical ideas to teach all sorts of biology topics at all key stages.

Susan Jones - Education Officer at the Welsh Mountain Zoo will also provide a short tour and information about the Welsh Mountain Zoo including the wide range of projects that can be undertaken at the Zoo, from species’ general behavioral observations relating to crowds, weather or their use of the enclosure space, to introducing new enrichment items and determining if species have “favourite” foods, colours, textures etc.

The Association for the Study of Animal Behaviour (ASAB) supports teachers in schools and colleges by providing free, fabulous and well thought out resources. www.asab.org/education

The Welsh Mountain Zoo is part of the National Zoological Society of Wales, and is a marvellous living resource. Nothing can replace the excitement and wonder of looking closely at a live animal. Learning about animals through close contact cannot be replaced by video or television and is hard to reproduce in the classroom.
