Including an element of science learning into your outdoors can help children to understand this topic in a way that they will find highly enjoyable, and which will help them to better understand the part they have to play in ensuring the survival of the environment in which we live. We can include compasses and sundials, to help them understand how to tell the time by the position of the sun in the sky. Weather recording materials enable them to monitor wind speed and rainfall can and then analyse the data on a tablet. We can also include various types of electricity generation, from mini-wind turbines to solar panels – from which you can harvest electricity to power other areas in your outdoors!
