Biodiversity Lesson Plan

In support of our Now & Next Sustainability Strategy our Biodiversity lesson plan was created to teach students about the diversity of life and ecosystems on Earth; and to leave them with an understanding of threats and protections for biodiversity.

What is the Biodiversity lesson plan?

Developed for ages 5 to 11, this lesson plan is a free resource. It provides a useful set of assets to help teachers and anyone working with young people of that age group to introduce them to biodiversity and how we can all play a part in protecting the planet’s ecosystems and diversity of life.
