Water Live Lesson

Our blue planet has five immense oceans and 113 seas. They represent 72 percent of the surface of the globe and are or have been connected, one way or another, to every molecule of water that can be found on Earth and inside every living being.

We're offering a morning of live workshops all about Water, with special guests from the Royal Zoological Society of Scotland (RSZZ), and Storyteller Allison Galbraith courtesy of the Scottish Book Trust. 

This lesson has been designed for Upper Primary but all pupils are welcome

Join us with your class or Eco-Committee on 6th June for a full morning of workshops, and on 10th June for an assembly to celebrate your work.  Lessons will be accompanied by classroom activities to do during the workshops and throughout the week and both sessions will be recorded for you to watch again later.
