Looking for activities to entertain and educate your children at home?  Look no further!

In collaboration with Sustainable Learning, the Natural History Consortium have created lesson plans, packed full of activity ideas.  The resources will teach children the basics of biological recording using the mobile phone app iNaturalist and how to take part in the City Nature Challenge.

The resources are designed for children aged 5-14, and include activities that can be done at home, in the garden or during your daily walk.

All the plants and animals that are recorded on the iNaturalist app will help local and national conservation work.

To find out more about the City Nature Challenge, visit the What is City Nature Challenge page.
