Learning Resources

Gain the confidence to take your classes outdoors and reconnect students with nature.

Our learning resources are here to support you as educators provide your students with immersive, nature based, outdoor learning opportunities. They will equip you with a foundation of knowledge to communicate about key environmental challenges such as biodiversity and habitat loss, freshwater pollution and sustainability. Each resource provides ideas for hands on activities you can run with you students as well as step by step guides for how you can take part in our citizen science projects Naturehood & Freshwater Watch.

Make the earth your classroom and see how you can inspire your students to take action for the planet.

Resources that you will get access to


You and your students can help wildlife thrive through simple actions and surveys in your schools grounds, local parks and gardens. Find out more about the species you can support and what you can do to help wildlife and habitats in your area with our Naturehood teachers pack.

Freshwater Watch

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.

Sustainable Development Goals

Enable your class to become a positive force for change in the world through taking part and contributing to the 17 Sustainable Development Goals.

Health and Safety

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.
