A mobile educational workshop, offering a variety of environmental action days with a key focus designated towards UK wildlife.
The business idea; ‘MiniBeastMayehm’ is based around the concept of a mobile educational workshop, offering a variety of environmental action days with a key focus designated towards UK wildlife. Intending to bring hands on resources inside the classroom, alongside the use of outdoor spaces to explore and discover the native natural world, the workshops will specifically target those of primary school age. As part of the environmental action days five individual workshops will be offered, targeting different ages and learning levels. 1) Wildlife detectives: Using all four senses, the children will investigate nature while out on discovery walks and bug hunts. This involves providing the children with their very own detective kit, including a magnifying glass, bug pots, and identification sheets, teaching them to recognize mini-beasts from our very own back garden. 2) Creature Features: For the younger groups – CreepyCrawlyCrafts. All children love to get messy! Together, they will learn how to will build a bat and create hibernating Hedgehogs and Spindly Spiders. For the older groups – Groups will participate in building bird boxes, Bee B&Bs and Minibeast Hotels. 3) BusyBirds: For younger groups – Children will take on the role of birds through different games and activities For older groups – there will be interactive handling and photo opportunities with the businesses own barn owl. Also with owl CSI, children will have the chance to inspect the contents of owl pellets and learn about their life, how they feed and where they live. 4) Let’s Learn: Learn about food webs, habitats and the life cycles of butterflies and frogs. Also if the facilities are available, pond dipping activities. 5) Mad about Mammals: Through studying our collection of mammal’s skulls, children will match the correct animal to the presented bones and remains. Alongside this they will study what they eat and how they cope in their environment. 1 Workshop, Roughly 1-2 hours long = £100 Full day, All five workshops = £250
