Carry out a combined litter pick and survey and use the results to create some literally rubbish charts!
The natural environment is used in lots of different ways: some people use it just for leisure and fun, like a trip to a beach or a forest; and other people use it as a resource. There are jobs that rely on the natural environment everywhere you look – you can even find urban farmers in the middle of our biggest cities. This activity will encourage students to learn about the industries that rely on their local environment, wherever they are.
This activity will help students understand some of the obvious and lesser-known creatures which live in their local area, and gain insight as to how these animals provide food for one another. This could encompass a simple forage around the school grounds, or could be expanded to a half-day visit to the beach, forest or park. Don’t be put off if you’re city-based – you’ll find just as much biodiversity, often more, if you look hard enough!
This activity will help students gain a deeper understanding of the geography, geology, flora and fauna of their local area, working collaboratively. They’ll investigate not only the physical layout of the area, but also what makes up the surface features, and how plants and animals have taken advantage of these features and the resources they provide.
An online guide to our twinning programme. All you need to know to get your started.
n this document you will find a whole host of ideas that you can develop to use for your twinning projects between the UK and the UAE.
In this activity you’ll find out about the mountains and uplands of the UK and UAE, and the animals that live there. Both schools will contribute to a shared card game which can then be used to learn about the animals from both regions.
Find out about Roots & Shoots activities around the world and adapt them for use in the UK.
Have a look into the forests in Tanzania. How do they compare to our forests? What people live and work there? How is deforestation affecting then? Have a go at this activity and find out.
Get your students to investigate deforestation and reforestation, and encourage your class to think about the impacts of both on the environment locally and across the wider world
