CONSERVATION ANIMATION

Creative Workshop

Do your students love building with bricks?

Students will explore the problems faced by tigers in Nepal and what Chester Zoo is doing to help them. Once the situation is understood, students will then become budding movie directors, collaborating to create a story about Tiger conservation before working in small groups to film different scenes of their story in stop-motion animation.

Our Conservation Animation workshop provides a unique opportunity for students to mix knowledge of animals and conservation with creative skills, allowing for literacy and ICT development.
