Local learning

A range of ideas and resources for activities that you can carry out in your local area, including an analysis of lichens as indicators of air quality, an investigation into whether your local centre is a clone town and a study of sustainable communities.

Although these activities may be demonstrated through specific examples, they can easily be adapted to a location near to your school.
