Woodland habitat

Investigation into the inhabitance of the woodland from invertebrates in the soil and leaf litter to bugs on the branches. Use various techniques, tree beating, pitfall traps, sweep netting, collect mini beasts and identify their adaptive features. Adaptation of woodland plant and the structure of the wood can be investigated.

A number of sensory games allow students to become immersed in the wood as well as fully camouflaged.

For older year groups the physical characteristic can be investigated and correlation’s found between the animals and plants found and the conditions measured.

This day can be developed into more Forest School activities such as den building, lighting fires and using tools and work on self esteem and independence.
Smaller groups are really necessary for this approach (maximum of 12).
