Pupils become wildlife explorers for the day and discover some of the wonderful wildlife in their school grounds or local neighbourhoods. By using these resources alongside the free wildlife recording app iNaturalist, pupils can submit biological records to local and national databases, helping scientists and researchers gain a greater understanding of a region's biodiversity
We are often told to draw what we see, rather than just what we think we see. However, this lesson encourages pupils to draw what they want to show, rather than just what they see. To do this, pupils will have to really understand the object in front of them by closely observing it, before then trying to get this across in their leaf drawing.
