Woodcock Watch

Inspire your students and school watching the migration of the Woodcock across Europe! This Lesson Plan series shows you how to follow individual birds as they fly across the northern countries of Europe.
Using the Game & Wildlife Conservation Trust's satellite tagging programme your students can choose an individual woodcock to follow and see its' progress on Google maps.
The lesson plans not only encourage students to follow a bird, but also to learn about their habitats, languages & culture of the countries they fly through and use basic maths to work out distances flown and speed of flight.
