Having worked with many schools to put conservation topics at the heart of their pupils’ learning, we know and understand the value of having real world issues at the centre of curriculum learning.
We’ve developed lots of ways to support fellow educators through our curriculum toolkits, resource packages and training opportunities to bring the curriculum to life. Using conservation topics, you can inspire and ignite a passion in your learners; helping them to build a connection with nature, the planet and species on it.
CONSERVATION CURRICULUM TOOLKITS
Our comprehensive toolkits will take your students on a journey through conservation. We’ve crafted lesson plans, progression overviews, resources and SO much more! Download everything you need for your year group here.
CPD AND EDUCATOR TRAINING
Whether you’re starting a new conservation project with us or want to learn more about how to support your class with their curriculum learning, we’re here to help. We have a various educator events and CPD opportunities available for you to book throughout the year.
Get your whole school involved in conservation though our project based learning opportunities. Through a series of workshops and a zoo visit we introduce your learners to one of our key conservation campaigns. We also work with you, the educators, to empower you to continue the learning after we’ve completed a project with you.
CONSERVATION SCHOOL AWARDS
We want to recognise those who go above and beyond to educate the next generation about conservation, so we’re celebrating conservation success with our Chester Zoo Conservation School Awards.
Since 2017 we’ve been working with Ignite Institute to inspire schools to put conservation at the heart of their curriculum and to EMPOWER the conservationists of the future!
Our resource packages are a great way to explore conservation topics through FUN and ENGAGING activities. Whether you’re studying native species, sustainability, rainforests or climate change, we’ve put step-by-step guides together to take your learners on an inspirational learning journey.
