Children's University - Learning in the Wild

Canterbury Environmental Education Centre is offering a new activity pack ‘ CEEC's Wetland Wildlife Survey' as part of the Kent Children's University's new ‘Learning In the Wild' initiative.

Learning in the Wild is an exciting course, which involves a number of top tourist attractions in the county.  Children apply for a free Passport to Learning , which they present at selected venues, to get an activity book that will earn them a number of credits. Each attraction has a number of credits allocated to it. For example, children earn 1 credit for completing ‘CEEC's Wetland Wildlife Survey.' Like most other attractions involved in the scheme, it will take around an hour's research and work to complete the ‘Wetland Wildlife Survey' and earn a credit. 

When the child has clocked up eight credits they can send in their passport in return for a Kent Children's University certificate and those with more than eight will also be eligible for a National Children's University certificate. CEEC's activity pack explores the lake habitat and the animals that live there through pond dipping, a ‘pond bingo' game as a means of identification, use of a simple numerical biological index to work out how clean the water in the lake is and much more!
