Young people, families and schools across Wales are invited to create designs of how they would improve their gardens, school grounds or local outdoor space for wildlife by taking part in our exciting Habitat Explorer competition. #habitatexplorer
For primary and secondary schools in Wales Enter our competition to win an Outdoor Learning kit for your school by inviting your students to redesign an outdoor space for wildlife. If you are teaching remotely, this activity can be done from home!
Start using our Habitat Explorer scorecards to invite your pupils to rate how good an outdoor space is for wildlife. Depending on where they are, pupils can score their school grounds, home gardens or even their local street. It’s simple – they just need to tick off the different habitats they can find and add up the scores.
If your students are at home and don’t have access to a garden and can’t go outside, not to worry, they can still take part! Ask them to imagine their local park or school grounds, or if they can see the street or other gardens from their window.
The next step is to ask your pupils to draw a picture of how they would improve the space to provide additional habitats and support more wildlife. To enter, simply take a picture of the favourite design from your class and submit your details through this online form for schools.
For young people and families Enter our competition to win an Outdoor Learning kit for your family by showing us how your children would redesign an outdoor space to help wildlife.
Start by using our Habitat Explorer scorecards to find out how many habitats you already have in your garden. If your family are at home and don’t have access to a garden, not to worry, you can still take part! Ask your children to imagine the local park or school grounds, or even look out the window and survey your street. It’s simple – they just need to tick off the different habitats they can find and add up the scores.
Then simply ask your children to draw a picture of how they would improve the space to provide additional habitats and support more wildlife. To enter, simply take a picture of their design and submit your details through this online form for families.
