British Science Week 2020 - Seven Wonders of the World
Seven Wonders of the World
An engaging, informative and very timely reminder of the beauty of Planet Earth – and why we should all do our bit to protect it!
Specially developed to tie in with the British Science Week 2020 theme of Our Diverse Planet, and able to accommodate up to 420 children in single day Seven Wonders of the World introduces pupils to some of the amazing lifeforms the Earth is home to – and reminds them of the crucial role that climate plays in maintaining diversity. This highly engaging Big Science Day has three components …
An interactive, whole-school opening assembly looking at (with the help of some of your pupils) the uniqueness of Earth (as far as we know!), some of the dangers posed to it by human activity – and what some ordinary people are doing to help …
Tailored workshops for every year group, using age-appropriate drama-based techniques to explore the diverse lifeforms supported by particular habitats, some of the challenges posed to them – and what can be done to protect them …
A celebratory closing assembly, in which classes work through a structured approach to share what they have learnt with the rest of the school community.
Suitable For: EYFS – Year 6 / P1 -P7 / Junior Infants to Sixth Class
Duration: whole day
Exploring: climate change, pollution, habitats and adaptations, the local environment (EYFS / P1), fresh water habitats (Year 1 / P2), the savannahs (Year 2 / P3), the oceans (Year 3 / P4), mountainous regions (Year 4 / P5), the poles (Year 5 / P6), the rain forests (Year 6 / P7).
Families Event: Top Tips for Saving the Planet! (add on event at the end of the day)
If we’re serious about saving planet Earth, it’s becoming more and more obvious that individuals need to take actions in their daily lives, rather than just relying on governments and big business to do it for them. So, coming at the end of a day of workshops with pupils (and following an opportunity for children to share some of their learning with their parents/carers), this engaging workshop manages to both take a light hearted look at some of the challenges that face us and support families in identifying real changes they can make. And by the end of the afternoon, you’ll have your very own school Pledge to Protect the Planet!
