Minibeasts in the Forest

Forests provide many learning opportunities, and are fantastic places to observe habitats and minibeasts. Visit your local woodland for a great day out, whilst meeting the needs of your science curriculum. Minibeasts in the Forest has everything you need!

This lesson, Minibeasts in the Forest,  created by the Forestry Commission, is both practical and thought provoking, especially since it addresses conservation issues alongside practical challenges.

For a great introduction to the forest and how it is cared for by the Forestry Commission, visit and look at the downloads page, where you will find an informative, child-friendly photo show, with notes and discussion questions.

You will also find some useful health and safety advice for your visit.
