Garden Watch

A Community Science Project for 5-11 year olds

OVERVIEW

Garden Watch encourages children to identify wildlife in their communities, understand why its there and get hands-on to nurture it!

All of the resources you need are free to download and include:

  1. Introductory school assembly/class presentation (MS Powerpoint)
  2. Explanatory letters for parents/carers (MS Word)
  3. Promotional flyers (MS Powerpoint)
  4. Printable children’s survey and Garden Watch Activity Book (MS Word & PDF format)
  5. Teacher’s Data Grab framework (MS Excel)

‘The best thing is to encourage children to really look at what is living on their doorsteps… literally! Involving families in exploring the wonders of nature can be very powerful, and dovetails into the Science curriculum beautifully.’

Garden Watch has been developed by Primary Science Teaching Trust College Fellow, Mr Toby Tyler. He shares his passion to engage children with observing the wildlife in their gardens, school grounds and local areas with you through this resource.
