Biodiversity

Biodiversity: teach children about how important diverse plant and animal life is for our fragile planet.

What is biodiversity? Why is biodiversity loss bad? Consider these questions, teach children about the importance of biodiversity, and give them the conservation skills to protect the planet with these KS1 and KS2 lesson plans.

These biodiversity mini-schemes of work for Key Stages 1 and 2 are perfect for teaching separately as standalone units of work, but they also form part of our larger Education for Social Responsibility curriculum for the whole school.
