Endangered species plant pots

Endangered species plant pots

This creative and practical activity is aimed at primary school children, who will require the help of an adult for scissor use. Children will select an endangered species from Arkive.org, to recreate in plant pot form. They must read about the habitat where the animal lives and recreate this using another plastic pot as a drip tray for excess water. The students will then fill the pots with soil and plant their seeds. As well as teaching students about the environments in which endangered species live, the importance of reusing or recycling plastic can also be highlighted throughout, as an additional educational element. Students can also learn about the life cycle of plants while their seeds grow into seedlings, then fully grown plants. Find out more about endangered species: arkive.org/endangered-species/ Find out more about plastics and their effect on the environment: www.arkive.org/c/marine-plastics Find out more about plants: arkive.org/education/teaching-resources-7-11#resourcePlants
