INFORMATION FOR TEACHERS
Take part in an unforgettable learning experience, centred in sustainability.
The BBC Earth Experience offers a unique adventure which you cannot find anywhere else. Unrivaled in scale and spectacle, this is a world of endless discovery, wonder and learning. Go round the world in one hour, explore the seven continents, see creepy crawlies up close and dive into our interactive Water World.
School visits are only available during term time and groups are welcome from 2 May 2023. Each booking includes access to an indoor classroom space, with dedicated toilets nearby. The experience is self-guided with curriculum-based activity booklets which you can complete either on site or back in your own classroom. The resources are curriculum linked and include Teacher Guides for each key stage booklet.
The experience immerses visitors into the natural world where they will meet the wonderful and extraordinary animal inhabitants of our seven continents, with narration by David Attenborough. Our activity booklets are designed to inspire children and develop their understanding, empathy and desire to protect the planet. This is an Experience which can be enjoyed by all, no matter the Key Stage.
The school resources have the following National Curriculum links across SCIENCE
(Habitats and microhabitats, Food chains, The needs of plants and animals for survival, Life cycles, Classification and adaptations) and GEOGRAPHY (Global Biomes, Oceans, Sustainability, Weather and Climate). And we cover PSHE at KS1 (learn about the things they can do to help look after the environment) and KS2 - ways of carrying out shared responsibilities for protecting the environment (what we can do at home and school).
ACTIVITY PACKS and teacher guides available for:
KEY STAGE 1
KEY STAGE 2 LOWER
