This activity is all about relating the work that your students carry out to help people, animals and the environment in their local area to the work of the Jane Goodall Institute in Tanazania, particularly in the Greater Gombe Ecosystem, where Dr Jane Goodall started working back in 1960.
I can’t begin to write this posting without first offering a huge Thank-You to everyone at Roots & Shoots for our Gold Award. It helps that we are family based and that the agents who are able bodied do not appear to perceive other agents’ difficulties as a barrier to certain experiences. I think one […]
The Reception Class have been learning about animal habitats near and far.
This week Year Five got down to the bare bones of extinction! With the help of some skulls from UCL’s Grant Museum, the pupils of St Michael’s C of E school, Camden learned about the dangers facing wild animals.

Students first learnt how to identify any mini beasts they might find. They then got the opportunity to collect and view some of […]

This activity is about looking at what sort of animals live in dry, dusty environments, and what special adaptations or features they have that allow them to do so.

This activity is about identifying the difficulties wildlife can face during cold weather, and how we can help them through these tricky times. The main thing that you should take away from this activity is that it is relatively easy to have a beneficial impact on local wildlife when they need a bit of help, so […]
