Challenge your
students to build
a new future
for the planet.

We are living in a critical time for the future of our planet. What we do in the next 50 years will have a significant impact on the quality of life and biodiversity of our species. It’s a collective mission.

Can you imagine, as an educator, being able to shape the leaders and guardians of this future through your work? Presenting, with the help of living examples, all the possibilities for education, awareness, and action for leaders and guardians of species and biomes that are so vital for life here?

BioParque do Rio has already
thought about all of this.

In fact, they have turned this thought into action in the form of three playful journeys, full of adventure and discovery, with interactive missions designed for students in early childhood, elementary, and high school cycles.

Our school visits are structured based on the guidelines of various international committees, such as WAZA (World Association of Zoos and Aquariums), ALPZA (Latin American Association of Zoos and Aquariums), AZAB (Association of Zoos and Aquariums of Brazil), and IZE (International Zoo Educators Association).

School Visits at BioParque do Rio
journeys that shape the future

The School Visits program at BioParque do Rio was designed by a multidisciplinary team as a living and co-participatory tool
for what the National Common Curricular Base calls the field of experiences, one of its priorities. This type of dynamic focuses on
the comprehensive education of your students, in which they will deal with important territories of their development, such as:

The self,
the other, and
the we

gestures, and

sounds, colors,
and shapes

Listening, speaking,
thinking, and

Spaces, times,
quantities, relationships,
and transformations

By expanding the themes and topics of these non-formal activities,
we can assist with your lesson plans, blending learning
and development objectives, always in the context of the students' daily lives.

5 Benefits of BioParque do
Rio's School Visits

Differentiated itineraries with maps and challenges for your students.
As a unique space in the city, BioParque do Rio offers various itineraries that can be customized according to your group of students' demands. Each journey is filled with adventure and discovery.
Approaches adapted to each educational level.
Each student is a unique universe of curiosity and potential. With that in mind, we have adapted our space for three educational levels: early childhood, elementary school (fundamental I), and middle school (fundamental II) with high school. This ensures the best learning experience for each age group.
Enriched experience with biological specimens and specially developed educational materials.
As enriching as learning is, experiencing learning in practice is even more valuable. During school visits to BioParque, our team uses a variety of resources, from skins, feathers, and scales to realistic simulations of various characteristics of our very special guests.
Immersive dynamics in various environments: farm, savannah, tropical, etc.
Within the simulated environments, your students can experience various sensory elements, promoting a true immersion.
Focused and exclusive teaching, with one educator for groups of up to 15 students.
To make it worthwhile, it is essential to listen to every question and witness every discovery. In BioParque do Rio's school visits, this is possible because we limit the maximum number of students per educator. Thus, classes of up to 50 students are divided into groups for better interaction.

Step-by-Step Adventure Map

As your group travels through the 12,000m² of constructed area with our team, where about
670 animals from over 130 species relive their biomes, your students will interact with various
challenges of knowledge, curiosities, and complementary content.

Since content and form work best together, the adventure of knowledge is built based
on diverse activities tailored to each segment to work on oral skills, retelling, or producing
stories based on situations and observations acquired during the visitation.
It is your group that, together with the BioParque do Rio team, will make this visit a memorable one.

We have an exclusive project for school visits to BioParque
do Rio, with the following information:

Leaders in the Field!

Middle and High School students are already facing the first challenges of their maturation, along with opportunities to become Conservation Leaders. The school visit for this segment provides tools for this:
we will teach about three major animal groups (Birds, Reptiles, and Mammals), the importance of biodiversity for ecosystem balance, and present possible actions to conserve the environment, making children true conservation leaders, aware of their actions.

Adventure Route: Kings of the Jungle / Asians / Carnivores / Little Farm / Primate Island / Cerrado / Savanna / Tropical Immersion / Reptile Village.

Thematic Guide for
In-Depth Exploration of the Mission

Thematic visits for any educational segment represent not only a moment of
adventure and discovery but also the birth of a fundamental connection for the
overall development of our students: the connection between the thematic axes of
the National Common Curriculum Base and the way of life of the animals present in our spaces.

BioParque do Rio is one of the best partners for this moment because it is,
at its core, an informal, playful, exploratory, and observational space. And, of course, a lot of fun!

Pack your backpack, enthusiasm, and curiosity and come
with our team to discover the thematic grids we have prepared!
