Lesson 3: Eco-Engineers 

An ecosystem is a community of living and non-living things that work together, and eco-engineers work hard to maintain a balance within this very special community.

Through this cycle of lessons, your class will learn what is an eco-engineer, and how do they use their skills to protect the environment.

Lesson 4: Polar Regions

Encourage your students to record and present information from non-fiction whilst they learn about the Polar Regions, showcasing their climates and the changes animals went through to adapt to this habitat.

Accompany your class on a fictional expedition to either the North or South Pole, and gather insights on these habitats from Guinness World Records 2022.

Lesson 5: Rebuilding The Earth

What impact do we have on the planet? Rebuilding the Earth is all about restoring a balance and creating a healthy planet where humans can live in harmony with nature. 

Learn what a nature-based solution is, and how they can help rebuilding Earth in urban environments.


For every class, encourage your students to share what they've learnt with friends, family and local community.
Spreading their new findings and comparing experiences with adults and fellow classmates can be a great way to inform and inspire!
