Just Add Water

This resource, aimed at primary level, links to the topics of living things and their habitats and seasonal changes. The colourful booklet provides a step-by-step guide to creating a pond, large or small, to provide a habitat in which frogs, newts and other wildlife flourish. It looks at the value of wildlife ponds, the plants and animals that could be added, ways to encourage children to visit the pond and how to look after it.

Information is provided about the seasonal changes that occur within a pond and the types of plants and animals which may be found at different times of the year. Ideas for activities are suggested including: pond-dipping, observation of different animals and plants and identification and classification.
