A day of science activity and discovery in a very small hillside wood near the top car park in Carding Mill Valley or on the coppiced woodland of Wenlock Edge.

KS1 and 2 Schemes of Work Unit 4B. You can use our equipment to see what is living and growing at differing levels: in the soil, in leaf litter, on soil surface, shrub layer, on stems and bark, in the canopy and in the air. Groups of 5 or so will collect data to compare habitat findings back at school. Combining this with habitat inspections on the hillside also provides a wealth of material. As does comparing pond life with stream life. A variety of possibilities.

Learn how to use binoculars and a spotscope in our new bird hide. It can be a springboard for artwork too.
