Connections The web of life Learn the importance of the web of life and the benefits of diversity within it.

Connections The web of life Explore how all living things depend on the sun, water, soil, air, and other plants, animals, fungi and bacteria to live, through matching cards with the different elements drawn on them.
Connections Patterns Observe the sound landscape, listening for patterns (e.g. bird song, river etc.).
Connections Patterns See branching and spiral patterns in different natural systems (e.g. water, flowers, growing plants).
Connections Patterns Observe the similarities between human beings and other animals (eat, sleep, excrete...).
Connections Patterns Spot the plants, insects or birds which are abundant in certain seasons.
Connections Patterns Collect things which are abundant at that time of year: foraging (e.g. berries).

Connections Patterns Listen to stories about the patterns of nature - patterns of the seasons and other natural cycles.
Connections Patterns Learn about the different seasonal patterns.
Connections Patterns Learn about the different patterns which exist in nature (spiral, branching etc.).
Connections Patterns See fractals (e.g. in a cauliflower, ferns).
Connections Patterns See the same pattern in different natural systems (e.g. the branching pattern is in trees, rivers, leaves and lungs), try using a magnifying glass to observe closely.
Connections Patterns See the patterns within the large scale (e.g. stars, weather or ocean currents), to give us a sense of place and develop a sense of awe.
