Great resources for educators

Action for Insects schools guide

The Wildlife Trusts have launched a new set of resources aimed at inspiring and engaging students about insects, the troubles they’re facing, and how action can be taken in schools to help them. As part of our Action for Insects campaign, we have created a series of learning sessions and other resources that you can download and use to get students excited about insects. To download your free pack click here.


We publish a bi-monthly e-magazine for Watch leaders and educators with a school membership. Each issue highlights great activities to do with your young people, as well as information about events and awards. Contact us if you'd like to find out more.

It's designed to support children to:

  • Understand the connections between nature, climate change and people.
