Wild Activities for all the family!

Devon Wildlife Trust's Education team have created a Wild Learning hub to help assist learning at home with lots of nature inpsired activities and ideas.  Lots of these activities can help fulfil curriculum criteria but there's also lots of great wild learning for all ages to be had. Lesson plans, identification guides, nature inspired crafts and 'how to help' ideas can be found here - scroll down to undertake our quizes and also to play some online wildlife games.

If you belong to an Exeter school, please scroll down to see your weekly challenge!

Curriculum linked Resources

Nature can provide endless opportunities for learning all kinds of subjects, much of the activities on this entire webpage not only have the obvious links to Science but also Art, Numeracy and Literacy. See below for a specific downloadable link on Literacy ideas and then click on the topics below for loads more activities and learning ideas based on those themes!
