My local trail

Local trail mapThis activity is all about exploring your local area to find the best spots to see the wildlife living around you and planning a walk that takes you past all the best spots. Even in the most built up areas there are still spots of green with all sorts of creatures living there, so let’s get planning our local area trail!

In this activity you and your students will:

  • Use maps and short trips to investigate local nature spots.
  • Plan a walk and draw your own map.
  • Write a walking guide including the things that might be seen along the way.
  • Optional: Add to your local area map

Objectives

To explore your local nature areas, spot and identify wildlife, while getting out to enjoy a walk.
