Resources

In this section you will find a host of resources for teaching IBSE. We’ve searched through many books, education packs and websites to find resources relevant for teaching in botanic gardens and other informal education settings. For each one we’ve prepared a short review and a link to the relevant website. We have also developed resources especially for the INQUIRE project. These are available to everyone participating in an INQUIRE course. To sign up for an INQUIRE course click here.

Your summary of the pros and cons of this task match pretty well with mine. Definitely an activity I'd use again, albeit with a few modifications like the ones you suggested.

Despite the wet feet, am glad you felt that learning was taking place. Well done for being the first to be uploaded.

I agree completely about the breakfast and pleasant surroundings. I like your idea of running this type of survey annually as a long-term study, might suggest it at our school.

Glad to hear you enjoyed getting wet and muddy and doing some outside ecology activities. I work at a Botanic Garden and am always amazed, but pleased, how much school children enjoy being outside regardless of the weather, and how in this high-tech, but often indoor-based, world there is so much to be discovered and learnt from hands-on outdoor activities. By working in small groups with guidance where needed, but nothing too prescriptive, school children can be given the opportunity to work with each other, exchanging ideas, reflecting on other’s views to enhance their own confidence, learning and life-experiences.

Climate change is happening- The IPCC’s fifth report

IPCC report published in September reveals that, due to human activity, average global temperatures are at their highest for 1400 years. It is already affecting the planet and it's only going to get worse. With the report suffering backlash from still unconvinced critics, how are the public to know what to believe?
