Primary School Resources

We also offer a range of free educational teaching resources for secondary schools.

Eco-Schools Biodiversity Resource Pack


Introduction

We have created this pack of resources to help the teaching of marine biodiversity, with Eco-Schools in mind. Classroom activities are designed to encourage active learning and to develop thinking skills including enquiry, problem solving and critical thinking. Many will also develop communication skills and creativity. Outdoor learning ideas and activities are available here to support you in providing valuable first-hand learning experiences involving direct contact with nature. Additionally we have ideas of how schools can get involved in local projects to promote and improve biodiversity.
