Jordans Biodiversity Creature Challenge - Harvest Festival Live

Learn more about biodiversity and why it's so important for the world we live in with this fun and creative activity.

Activity

  • If the whole class picks a letter and a creature, you should have enough to spell ‘Biodiversity’.
  • Now, in your class, line up with your letters to spell ‘Biodiversity
  • What happens when you take a letter out? Without all of the letters you can’t read the word!
  • That is why Biodiversity is so important: without a variety of letters (animals), words (our planet) can't survive!

Resources

  • BIODIVERSITY letters print-out for drawing
  • British animal & plant cards to match to each of the letters in BIODIVERSITY
