As a part of the Dragons in the Hills project, funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund, we have developed a set of outreach resource packs for primary aged-children that can be used for classroom or other outreach sessions with this age group. Each pack has been developed to support the Northern Ireland Schools curriculum, and aims to engage the children with different aspects of ecology and biodiversity. So of the materials take a more general approach to taxonomic classification and food webs, and some are more specifically concerned with conservation of amphibians and reptiles.


Reptiles and Amphibians - games and fun facts - our first special outreach pack for primary aged children is bursting with puzzles, games and fun facts about amphibians and reptiles in Northern Ireland - pdf you can download it here (5.74 MB)
