Teachers planning immersive, educational trips in the natural environment now have an invaluable resource at their fingertips, WWT’s new Learning Zone website.
The new site is a one-stop shop of unique resources and ideas for all ages. Teachers can use these resources to plan lessons in school as well as curriculum-linked trips to one of WWT’s nine wetland centres across the UK, focusing on the natural world and outdoor learning.
New materials featured on the site include a wide range of hands-on self-guided resources to engage learners with wetlands and the wildlife around them and pre and post visit resources to inspire learners before a visit and extend their learning afterwards. There is also information on the extensive range of guided sessions available, delivered by experienced learning staff and covering a wide variety of curriculum themes (included in admission price).
In addition, the site lists WWT’s wide range of benefits for pre-schools, schools and colleges and information on making the most of your educational visit (based on 70 years of experience!).
