looking at invertebrates in th school grounds
The best learning is linked to the immediate locality or projects the school is developing.
Most easily seen wildlife in the vicinity of schools is invertebrates and birds.
Time is spent planning and preparing for a visit, both to look at the local habitats, prior to the school visit, and provide interesting activities for young learners.
