From Teachers TV, this video shows four examples of day visits that look at the environment and are suitable for primary school children. Part of the Great Lesson Ideas series, the visits it shows are:
The Eden Project giving children the chance to find out about the geography and science of tropics and the desert.
The Blue John Cavern, an adventurous underground trip where children can see stalagmites, underground river routes and learn about mining.
Spitalfields City Farm, where children can get up close with animals and farming.
The National Arboretum providing a stunning background for discovering the maths behind trees, and Mary planning out a numeracy trail.
Fantastic locations and learning outside the classroom can spark the imaginations of children and show them that science can be fun.
