Getting pupils out of the classroom and into the great outdoors is an excellent way to enhance their learning, either on school grounds or in local green spaces. From identifying wildlife to growing their own plants, even making their school a haven for threatened species, there’s something here to get them inspired. Find ideas and resources to make the most of the experience and to support it in the classroom
CCEA has endorsed this resource which was supported and developed by Earth Science Ireland through its educational committee Earth Science Outreach.
The resource complements the Northern Ireland Curriculum and provides information and ideas to bring Earth Science to the classroom in practical and relevant ways for pupils in Key Stage 2.
The learning activities within the materials support the development of the Thinking Skills and Personal Capabilities as well as opportunities to develop the cross-curricular skills of Communication, Using Mathematics and Using ICT.http://ccea.org.uk/curriculum/key_stage_1_2/areas_learning/world_around_us/earth_science
