Life on the farm

8th October 2004 at 01:00
Not all nine-year-olds can confidently tell a water flea from a water louse, but if their teachers get hold of Biodiversity co British Farming, they should be able to make an intelligent guess. The compact ring-binder provides background materials for visits to farms where woodlands and hedgerows are preserved, ponds and ditches created and a variety of habitats such as field margins maintained. There are model worksheets for investigations into minibeasts, bark rubbing, tracing animal trails and listening to birdsong. You can also get a packet of seeds to grow native wild flowers and grasses. To order Biodiversity co British Farming or get information on farm visits: Tel: 024 7685 8261
