Pre and post-visit resources
Developed by educational experts in partnership with practising teachers, our pre and post-visit resources introduce topics prior to your visit and extend pupils’ learning back in the classroom.
Adaptations, evolution and inheritance
Discover how different animals have adapted to live in different habitats (7-11 years) and how variations can drive natural selection (11-14 years).
Ecosystems and environmental change
Discover the role of wetlands in providing important habitat, cleaning water, reducing flood risk and preventing climate change.
Explore different habitats and micro-habitats. Which animals live here and how do these habitats provide for their needs?
Identification and classification
Explore different ways of grouping and classifying living things. What does each group have in common and what sets the different groups apart?
Compare the life cycles of different animals. What are the main similarities and differences as each animal develops from young to adult?
Explore the world with migratory birds. Why do they migrate, where do they travel and what challenges do they face on the way?
Discover how some plants have adapted to life in wetlands and why all plants are vital to life on Earth.
Structure of animals
Explore how animals have developed different body structures to suit their habitats and lifestyles.
