Its a great opportunity to get outside with your class into local woodland, or even a local stand of trees! Students will conduct a biodiversity survey, discovering the types of trees that make up a forest, and the other plants and animals that live there.

This “bite-sized” activity  is part of our Forest Activities. These activities are designed to encourage groups to use local forests and woodlands as a learning resource, encouraging students to get outdoors and interact with their local environment.
