Students can investigate the health of global freshwater ecosystems on a scale never seen before. Collecting water quality data at their local water-bodies, students can help researchers understand how humans are influencing the health of our fresh water.
We depend on healthy soils, and earthworms keep soils healthy. Earthworm Watch enables students to develop scientific literacy skills linked to the Science National Curriculum through hands-on experiences categorising earthworms and soils, taking part in a real scientific enquiry.
Students can investigate decomposition processes vital to plants, soil and the environment with The Teabag Index, an accessible project to bring this vital ecosystem process to life.
Enable your class to become a positive force for change in the world through taking part and contributing to the 17 Sustainable Development Goals.
Each project has Health and Safety guidelines that you should read prior to doing any risk assessment. It is very important that teachers are aware of the nature and risks in their school grounds or nearby green spaces where activities may be delivered. All of our projects allow teachers and students to engage with the outdoor environment, whether digging for earthworms, burying teabags or measuring the health of fresh water.
