Learning about the environment is an essential part of science. Primary school children will take great pleasure and enjoyment in learning about plants, animals and insects in the garden, parks, woodlands etc. Going for a walk with your child and pointing out objects in nature can develop their natural curiosity for things around them.
Many children learn best when they are enthused about something and nothing beats going for a walk with the family.
KS1 / KS2 kids will love these nature spotting activities. They will help children become more aware of the variety of species around and be able to name them.
Excellent outdoor activities for kids can be found on the Nature Detectives website.
