When working with schools, it is worth checking with the current national curriculum for your country to see how you can tailor your talk or workshop to fit in with this. Schools are far more likely to make time for you to visit or host field trips if there are clear curriculum links. This sheet highlights things you could include. Adder engagement work can fit into so many areas of the curriculum, including: art, history, geography, drama, mathematics (adders!), English language – poetry, creative writing. However, the most obvious link is through ecology and science. Check out the ‘Adder poem’ activity sheet and all of our artistic activities for more ideas.
Our ‘Food chains and webs’ activity sheet also provides ideas for a simple ecological activity, which can be adapted to the age and Key Stage of your group. This sheet has some further tips on how to bring ecology into the classroom when talking about adders.
