Game of the Month

Treasure Hunt

What does it take to be a good treasure hunter? How structured do children search for information and do they recognise if they are on the right track or totally off? We want to learn more about this! If you are interested too and have a child between age 5 and 8, please visit us at the Zoo Berlin!
