Download our resource packs, Litter Legends and Marvellous Minibeasts, in order to engage young learners in outdoor education. You can watch the accompanying videos on our YouTube channel and complete the fun and informative activities within the packs. These resources directly link to the NI Primary Curriculum for Key Stages 1&2 through the World Around Us, helping children develop an awareness of themselves, their place in the world and the environment.
- Litter Legends – This pack is designed to introduce pupils to the topic of litter by exploring what it is, it’s impact on the environment and what we can do about it. We hope that the video and these activities will get pupils thinking about our impact on the environment and how our positive actions can have a beneficial effect on the local environment and wildlife. The theme of this pack explores the positive & negative effect of people on the natural environment over time, change over time and our responsibility to make an active contribution to the natural world.
- Marvellous Minibeasts – This pack is designed to introduce pupils to minibeasts, the importance of insects’ roles in our world, including pollination, and how we can help them. We hope that the video and these activities will get pupils thinking about how important insects are to us and our ecosystems and how our positive actions can have a beneficial effect on the local environment and wildlife. The theme of this pack explores the interdependence between plants, animals and ourselves, as well as how animals adapt and survive within in varying environments. It also highlights how people can effect positive change on their environment and benefit local wildlife.
