Working with the British Trust for Ornithology (BTO) our exciting citizen science campaign ‘What’s under your feet’, is helping to uncover the impact climate change is having on birds across the UK.
We need teachers and students to take part by collecting data from soil samples in the months of October, March and June. It’s a great outdoor activity that not only has real scientific importance but also aims to inspire young minds and get everyone working together.
You can find all the resources you need including; a handy checklist and activity overview, lesson plan, recording sheets and even a short video showing Dr Blaise Martey carrying out the sampling herself.
If you want to take the activity further, you can complete an additional survey and record birds visiting your playing field too.
All schools who feedback data will be credited in the scientific paper being written by the BTO.
