More about this Workshop/Service and the Provider

ZIP WORLD, is one of North Wales's biggest tourist attractions, with three sites across the Snowdonia National Park. Each site is carefully scouted for its natural beauty and the brand works sympathetically with the landscape to create groundbreaking, exhilarating adventures.

Zip World introduces a brand new educational programme inviting teachers to escape the classroom and bring lessons to the great outdoors. Tying in key components from the National Curriculum for Key Stage 2 & 3 the 'Gravity in Geography' package will include detailed lesson plans, worksheets and powerpoint for pre, during and post the visit.

In the Elements

Children who get the opportunity to learn outdoors regularly are more curious, self-directed and likely to stay with the task longer. Spending time in nature can additionally help improve moods and increase happiness encouraging children to appreciate nature and grow up wanting to protect the environment around them.

Learning Support

Zip World will provide pre-visit lesson plans to help build excitement in the classroom. There will also be a full activity booklet to use during the visit to keep children focussed but also to have fun. Teachers will receive answer booklets to support students during the excursion.

Real-Life Examples

During the programme pupils will be exploring the ecological surroundings of the Welsh landscape where they will examine real-life gravitational forces in caves, forests and quarries. A brilliant way to bring gravity and geography to life rather through technology that is fun, engaging and memorable.

Adventure Design

Once back in the classroom, lesson plans are provided to support pupils with extended thinking and understanding from what they have learnt so far. Activities will encourage pupils to put into practice what they have learnt by designing their own adventures taking the environment and sustainability into consideration.
