National Wildlife Week is a fantastic time to explore and interact with wildlife. From mini-beast hunting to pond-dipping there are so many activities that can help your children get close to nature.
Even better, why not take small actions to help your local wildlife that will last beyond National Wildlife Week? By encouraging wildlife into your gardens and local green parks you’ll be sharing your home with lots of fascinating animals and plants, making it a more beautiful and exciting place to live.
All of these activities are a fantastic way to enhance younger children’s understanding of their local environment, and they’re also a brilliant starting point for planning scientific investigations for primary-aged pupils.
There’s so much to observe! Help your children develop a passion for nature with these brilliant resources. And don’t forget to take a look at the National Wildlife Trust’s website for more information.
