Featured Activity: What lives in forests?


Red Squirrel by Andrzej Barabasz (Chepry) (Own work) [GFDL ( or CC-BY-SA-3.0 (], via Wikimedia CommonsThis week we’re featuring another resource about forests. This activity is all about the plants and animals that inhabit European forests. 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.

This activity looks at the people who work in or depend on the forests.
