Links for schools

Breathing Places for Schools has lots of activities and things to do in relation to the environment.

Get your students involved in nature and the outdoors go to Teaching Space which gives you lots of information and downloadable resources and activities to do in the schoolground to the seashore. It includes a section on biodiversity. There is also a map of Natural Heritage Sites you can visit in Scotland. The site is easy to navigate and has lovely photo prompts.

We learn about nature through spending time outdoors and to encourage future stewardship of our natural world and to protect biodiversity we should encourage such activities. A good resource for this is Grounds for Learning which gives advice, training and resources to help develop school grounds.

The Forest Education Initiative have produced activities on forests.

Become one of a growing number of scools involved in Eco Schools Scotland. It is an initiative that the students take control of and they set up eco activities within the school related to, for example, litter or minimising waste. There are lots of guidance notes on the website. In addition you will become eligible for awards from bronze to gold. If you are already involved, keep up the good work, if not check this site out.
